  1. Hey Michael,

    I just saw your results from prelims day 4 at ncsa junior nationals and I was wondering what happened? On swim swam.com someone in the comments said that you were doing a lot more yards and were swimming long course. Is this true? If yes why have you switched? If not are you changing anything about your training going into olympic trials? Also I was wondering, with usrpt do you ever taper for a swim meet?
