Micah Sumrall of Chattahoochee Gold talked about what it was like being back at the Golden Goggles for the first time in a couple years. Sumrall won the Perseverance Award on Monday night in New York City. Sumrall won the award over Ella Eastin and Katie McLaughlin.

Sumrall talked about her experience thus far in New York and what types of bakeries she visited with her husband whilst in the city.

2012 Olympian Micah Sumrall bounced back in a big way in 2018 with a gold-medal performance in the 200m breaststroke at the Pan Pacific Championships. After missing the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team, she took time away from the sport before resurfacing with Chattahoochee Gold Swim Club earlier this year. Buoyed by the support of the age-group swimmers she coaches, Sumrall won the 200m breast title at Phillips 66 Nationals and took third in the 100m breast in Irvine to qualify for her first international roster since 2015. In Tokyo, she nearly matched her career-best time in the 200m breast en route to gold, her first at a major international competition.
