Goldfish Swim School Signs on as an Official Sponsor of the USA Swimming Foundation



By USA Swimming Foundation | Tuesday, October 2, 2018

DETROIT - Goldfish Swim School Franchising, LLC has signed on as an official sponsor of the USA Swimming Foundation, the philanthropic arm of USA Swimming. The company will support the Foundation's Make a Splash initiative, a national child-focused water safety campaign that aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim, by becoming an official learn-to-swim provider and water safety advocate across the country. In addition to providing swimming lessons and educating children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim, Goldfish Swim School Franchising has set a fundraising goal to raise $1,000,000 by 2024 in an effort to help fund free or reduced-cost swim lessons in communities across the country.

Goldfish Swim School shared news of the partnership with its 74 franchise locations at the brand's annual conference this week in Detroit, Michigan, alongside Olympic gold medalists and USA Swimming Foundation ambassadors Ryan Murphy and Jason Lezak. Goldfish Swim School Co-Founder Jenny McCuiston also presented the USA Swimming Foundation with a check for $20,000 to jump-start the company's donation efforts.

KATHLEEN BAKER TIES KATIE MEILI'S 100 IM AMERICAN RECORD 58.02



Competing at the FINA World Cup stop in Budapest, Kathleen Baker tied the American Record in the women's 100 IM in a time of 58.02, equalling the record set by former Team Elite teammate Katie Meili in 2016.

Baker, who announced that she was turning pro a few months ago, produced a personal best at the first short course stop in Eindhoven in 58.14, placing 2nd to world record holder Katinka Hosszu. Here, she actually dropped a spot down to 3rd, but improves her time by just over a tenth to tie Meili's record.

Hosszu repeated as the winner in 57.64, and it was Sweden's Sarah Sjostrom who improved from a 4th place finish in Eindhoven up to 2nd in 57.75.

In such an elite field featuring Hosszu, Sjostrom and Australian Emily Seebohm, Baker was just 3rd on the first 50 in 26.36, identical to her front half in Eindhoven, before closing just over a tenth faster in 31.66.

Meili, a breaststroke specialist, was about eight-tenths slower than Baker opening up (27.16), but was the same margin quicker closing in a blistering 30.86.

This gives Baker a share of her second SCM American Record on the circuit, as she broke the 100 back record in Eindhoven in a blistering 55.91.

The Making of Milo Cavic: Living Without Regret



By McKenna Ehrmantraut, Swimming World College Intern.

Many know Milo Cavic as the man who almost ruined Micheal Phelps' chance of winning eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Losing to Phelps in a controversial race by .01 seconds may have made Cavic a household name, but few stopped to appreciate the man who had overcome obstacle after obstacle to become an Olympic medalist in his own right.

Recently, Cavic took a coaching position at King County Aquatics in Federal Way, Wash., and sat down to talk about his life growing up, his swimming career and his life now.

...Up until college, where Cavic meet swimmers like Nathan Adrian who were raised in a positive family and swim environment...

Q&A with Ryan Murphy on Back2Back Swim Camp

10 October 2018, 01:00pm

By Courtney Mykkanen, Swimming World College Intern.



Olympians Ryan Murphy and Jacob Pebley recently coached the first ever Back2Back Swim Camp in Palo Alto, Calif. The two-day backstroke camp consisted of 60 swimmers nationally who met the qualifying time standards. These qualifying swimmers not only got to train and race with Murphy and Pebley, but they also got to learn from them in a variety of settings: on deck, in the pool and in the classroom. Swimming World got to catch up with Murphy regarding the camp's background, highlights, and future plans.

10 Golden Bears Elected To Cal Hall of Fame

Those who have been elected into the Hall are:
  • Duje Draganja (men's swimming, 2002-05) three-time Olympian and eight-time NCAA champion who won a silver medal in the 50-meter free for Croatia in 2004


Duje Draganja (men's swimming, 2002-05) - Draganja was a three-time Olympian for his native Croatia, winning a silver medal in the 50-meter freestyle at the 2004 Athens Olympics. He captured eight NCAA titles during his Cal career, including back-to-back wins in the 100-yard free at the 2003 and 2005 NCAA Championships. He also earned five individual and 10 relay victories at the Pac-10 Championships. Named the 2005 Pac-12 Swimmer of the Year, Draganja set a then-NCAA record of 41.49 seconds in the 100 free at the 2005 NCAA meet and that swim still stands as second in Cal history behind only Nathan Adrian.
