The New Michael of the Swimming World

August 27, 2015 0 Comments

Michael is not a new name in the sport of swimming. But this blog happens to be focusing on someone other than Phelps. This time, we’re talking about Michael Andrew.
Michael Andrew is a 14 year old teenager that is vying for the Rio Olympic team. He may have a chance at making it too.
 

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH MICHAEL ANDREW?

swimmThis teenager is taking the sport by storm. He has already broken many age records. The thing that has really captured the attention of the media though is the way he trains. There is more than the norm in the family involvement department.
His dad is his coach and his mom is his manager. Also, he swims at his racing pace when he trains. Which is not standard for swim training AT ALL. It’s a very unique approach.
 “Michael trains in a two-lane pool built in the family’s backyard in Lawrence, Kansas. His father puts him through a regimen that challenges one of the sport’s long-standing tenets: swimmers should do thousands of yards, pushing themselves to the brink of their physical limits, before tapering back so they can be fresh for their important meets. Andrew trains in short bursts, always at the speed he would use during the actual race for whatever event he is working on”

Johnny found a love for swimming a little later in life. He really didn't know how to swim too well when he first started...
