What It's Like to Be an Olympian with Gary Hall Jr.
Whether for his accomplishments in the pool or his personality outside of it, Gary Hall Jr. is simply unforgettable. You probably remember him as a U.S. swimmer for the 1996, 2000, and 2004 Olympics, where he won a total of 10 medals, five of them gold. And if you don't remember him for that, then you probably remember his pregame warmups, which included shadow boxing and plenty of bicep flexing.
Gary joins the show to give us an inside look at the Olympics. What's it like to be born into a family of hugely successful swimmers? What's the deal with athletes using nutritional supplements all the time nowadays? Do they actually work? Does early specialization really help kids achieve greatness at higher levels?
It's a fun, informative, and fast-paced interview you won't want to miss. Listen in to see why Gary says, "It's the athlete who has fun that wins, not the athlete that wins who has fun."
