When asked whether his family had a part in the decision, he declared ‘absolutely!’ We have been very disappointed that our son learned to walk before the butterfly.

We dream of the day that father and son can swim in the same Olympics. My wife is really looking forward to working in Columbus, which is a fashion mecca.
The star has asked to remain anonymous until he is able to speak with his former coach.
