Episode 52: The John Naber Swimming Experience
Download this episode!
Happy Anniversary to us! That’s right–one year ago this week, we launched our very first episode (you want to go back and listen, right?…..Maybe not. We didn’t really get into a groove until episode 3 or 4)!
It’s been a year of amazing adventures and fascinating Olympic stories, and this week’s guest is no exception. We continue what seems to be a Montreal theme this year and sit down with swimming legend John Naber. John was the golden boy of the 1976 Montreal Olympics, winning four gold medals and one silver medal, and setting multiple world records that held up for years.
John talks about swimming, his Montreal experience, his career as a broadcaster and his work with Olympians for Olympians Relief Fund. And we talk about the puzzle that is this week’s show pic and the fact that Jill has not yet been able to get that quarter out. You better believe you’ll hear about it when she does.
We also have some great news about the USOC’s decision to create equity between Olympians and Paralympians in terms of medalist monetary awards. Check out Oksana Masters’ reaction.
Plus, trying to make sense of WADA’s decision to readmit RUSADA, a big slice of TOFU, and some Olympic Fever anniversary fun!
