Big-Hearted Swimming

On today’s episode, Kelly Palace shares her interview with distance swimmer Zane Grothe that she conducted at the recent Pro Swim Series event in Bloomington, Ind. Grothe talks about how watching himself on video improves his technique and how other swimmers like Michael Phelps, Michael Andrew and Caeleb Dressel inspire him.

Grothe talks about how pushing himself to do his best in the pool has helped him succeed in other areas of life too. He shares a typical training week and what his diet entails with listeners -- and explains the “why” behind his mohawk hairstyle.
