Olivia Smoliga has established herself as a key piece of the U.S. swim team over the past two years at the Olympics and the World Championships, and aside from her relay gold medals, she has inched closer to winning an individual medal in the 100 back.

At Golden Goggles last week, Smoliga explained why she feels so much more experienced than she did at her first Golden Goggles one year earlier. She explained how she’s adjusting with the end of her college career (although she’s still living in Athens, Ga.) and how she’s enjoying life as a professional.

Watch carefully early in the video for a noteworthy video-bomb from Caeleb Dressel.
