PERSONAL - Mark Conroy is the son of Valerie and Andrew Conroy... enjoys soccer outside of swimming... favorite movie is Step Brothers... chose Mizzou for the facilities, coaching staff, and team atmosphere.
Why did you choose Missouri?
I always wanted to come to the USA to swim in college, and the programme here at Mizzou has everything I need and more to be a succesful swimmer, including incredible facilities and staff. Obviously I was sad to leave ENGLAND behind, but I know it was a good decision. It rains too much at home.
How has the program at Mizzou made you a better swimmer?
It has given me the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches in the world, who really care about getting thebest out of you that they can. Being surrounded by a great team gives me the motivation to work hard even when I don't feel like it.
What is your best memory with the team?
My teammates trying to make me feel at home by using English accents and singing English songs. It really works!!!
