Swimming with an Olympian is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Michael's positive attitude was contagious.

We talked about working hard to meet goals and being passionate about what you do. His determination was motivating. While I learned a lot about swimming techniques, he inspired me to work harder. Thank you.
