How has the program at Mizzou made you a better swimmer?
The coaches and administration here at Mizzou really value the student athlete above everything else. The staff here invests so much time into making us better every day. They will always take the time to videotape with you after practice, and are very open to making changes. The Mizzou pool is one of the best in the nation, and it is a privilege to get to train in this facility.
