New Ryan Lochte Doc Paints Sympathetic Picture, But Raises Deeper Questions
July 16, 2020— I’ve found myself rooting for Ryan Lochte since his return to the national stage in summer 2019. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about why that’s the case — he has repeatedly brought negative attention to the sport and to himself for making undeniably poor choices, and yet, I’m always drawn back by his “party boy-turned-family man” narrative. His latest foray to the small screen, “ In Deep with Ryan Lochte ” – while entertaining – did little to quell that confusion. The 69-minute film is a well-executed attempt by NBC to paint Lochte as a sympathetic figure. I teared up at times, l ...

Kieran Smith Hopes Stellar Sophomore Year Is Just The Beginning
April 3, 2020— When the NCAA cancelled its winter championships last month due to the coronavirus that has affected the entire world, it was a huge blow to all involved.

Fans of swimming missed out on seeing records, a tight team race – all the things that make the NCAAs so enjoyable. Florida sophomore Kieran Smith was an athlete who many were itching to see. In February at the SEC Championships, Smith broke the American record in the 500 freestyle with a 4:06.32. The night before, he led off ...

Jan. 19, 2021— Whether you are at the Olympics or a summer league meet, you will see people behind, or on, the blocks doing their little pre-race ritual. Some are just subconscious tics that you don’t even realize you do every time you get behind the block. Some are silly. Some are intimidating. And some are just plain annoying. Here are a few of the most common ones I would see at a meet: The Phelps back slap – You’ve all seen this one. When the GOAT would step up on the block and stretch that mighty 6’7’’ wingspan behind his back and then lets go to do the mighty back slap. When you see this happ ...

Jan. 17, 2021— Gold Medalist to Capitol Insurrection: Tracing the Rise and Fall of Klete Keller There’s no sugarcoating the effect on the world of swimming that seeing Klete Keller’s among protestors storming the United States Capitol on Jan. 6 has had, just as there’s no diminishing the chilling effect of five lives lost that day or that the insurrection has had on American democracy. It’s made for a convenient hook in headlines of the coverage – of CEOs, elected officials and yes, an Olympic swimmer, joining an unruly mob of right-wing protestors trying to stop the certification of an election lo ...
