Connor Jaeger of Club Wolverine discusses setting the American record in the 1650 Freestyle.
May 17, 2013: Olympian and NCAA champion Connor Jaeger joins today's edition of The Morning Swim Show. Jaeger and his teammates at the University of Michigan have been riding a large wave of momentum since winning the team title in March at the NCAA swimming and diving championships. It was tough for Jaeger to take a week off from training after the meet, but he has been training hard for his goals this long course season. He talks about his recent swims at the Arena Grand Prix in Charlotte and how he’s holding the mantle of one of the fastest distance swimmers in the United States. As a mechanical engineering major, he’s also got a major balancing act with school and athletics, and he talks about the help he gets to make sure everything falls in line.
