Josh Davis: Consistency is Key, Episode #63, 5-12-2020

This week’s guest is five-time Olympic medalist Josh Davis who talks with Kelly and Maria about setting routines and repeating patterns to reach success. He also talks about his swimming Renaissance using ultra short race pace training. Tune in to hear his tips for success and how faith, instead of fear, drive his decisions. 


Josh Davis won three gold medals in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and came back four years later to win two silver medals in Sydney. He was a nine-time U.S. champion in the 200-meter freestyle (every year from 1996 to 2002) and he also won titles in the 400-meter freestyle and the 200-meter backstroke. He remains very competitive in his age group for Masters, winning the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle and finishing as the runner-up in four events in the 45-49 age group at the 2019 U.S. Masters Spring National Championships.  

Josh Davis is the current and first head coach of Oklahoma Christian University’s swim team and is one of the most prolific ambassadors and teachers of swimming skills through his more than 1000 Breakout! Swim clinics.  Josh continues to inspire and motivate swimmers during the coronavirus pandemic with his Motivational Monday interviews on Facebook.
