On today's edition of The Morning Swim Show, we talk with Jessica Hardy, who now sits as the fastest 100 breaststroker in the world this year. Hardy talks about the thrill of being able to compete at the Indianapolis Grand Prix after many months of training, and what her times mean for her preparation for the Olympic Trials. She also talks about the atmosphere at Trojan Swim Club, where she trains with two other top breaststrokers, as well as alongside her fiancé Dominik Meichtry.
Jessica Hardy previews this weekend's JAX 50 sprint challenge, and talks about why she's not too confident about her short course yards racing abilities. She also discusses her training for this summer's world championships, why she's still focusing on breaststroke in preparation for 2012 and what the status of her appeal to swim in the London Olympics is.
Just a few days after winning her latest appeal, Jessica Hardy talks about the long wait to hear when the official word will come on her status to try out for the 2012 Olympic team. She also talks about getting back into competition and what it's like to have Rebecca Soni as a teammate.
