In every sport, the relationship between the coach and the athlete is fundamental for the positive development of skills and performance. In swimming, this relationship can deteriorate when performances are unsatisfactory, despite the focus and commitment.
This summer after 7 years, 4 in college and 3 as a professional swimmer, I decided to leave the guidance of my former Coach Gregg Troy, to whom I will be forever grateful.
This change will certainly help me maintain the highest level of motivation and the drive needed to improve.
A special thought of gratitude and appreciation goes to Dr. Erva Gilliam - UF Director of Swimming Operations.
Thanks to all of you!
