I am a freestyle, distance swimmer, but, work hard to constantly improve all my strokes and times. After watching Michael Phelps swim in the Beijing Olympics, I chose swimming to be my primary sport.
A good team environment is so important. It really motivates you to do your best every day. It especially motivates me when I swim my distance events. I know the hard work I put in at practice with my teammates, will show at meet time.
I have recently started weight training in hopes I will incorporate additional strength. I am excited to see the additional benefits this will bring for swimming.
Swimming at the college level has been a goal of mine since I started swimming competitively at age nine. The kind of discipline I get from being a swimmer helps me with my studies and practice commitment. I hope to be a part of a college team and make an impact wherever and whenever I can.
I want to study History in college because I enjoy facts, culture and world events. If you have a passion about a specific subject, you'll want to learn all about it. I also would like to own a small business one day. Zach's Burgers will be a success because everyone loves burgers. I need to take business courses to learn the books and trends. Feeling comfortable within a team, will help me in this career path.
Swim, eat, study, sleep, and repeat!
