Summary
This week, we hear from IU swim coach Ray Looze, the 2016 Big Ten Coach of the Year for both men’s and women’s swimming, along with swimmers Lilly King, a rising sophomore from Evansville studying physical education in the School of Public Health, and Blake Pieroni, a rising junior from Chesterton, Ind., studying biology in the College of Arts and Sciences. King was named the 2016 Big Ten Women’s Swimmer of the Year. Both King and Pieroni hope to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Aug. 5 to 21) at the Olympic Trials for swimming June 26 to July 3 in Omaha, Neb.

In this podcast, King and Blake talk about the discipline required for day-to-day life as student swimmers — and the numerous calories needed to fuel their training.
