Lilly King and Cody Miller train together at Indiana University in Bloomington under coach Ray Looze and have an amazing friendship. Both are breastrokers that walked away from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games with some serious hardware. Lilly won two golds in the 100 breaststroke and 400 medley relay, while setting a world record. Cody earned a gold medal in the 400 medley relay and a bronze in the 100 breaststroke.  

At IU, Lilly accomplished the unprecedented four-peat of winning NCAA titles in the 100 and 200 breaststroke and Cody earned multiple All-American honors. Cody is the first professional swimmer to be sponsored by Endless Pools and his YouTube channel, The Adventures of Cody Miller, has nearly 150,000 subscribers.
