Who knows…we might even talk a little ice cream as well. We hope you enjoy!
In episode #21, we sat down with Swimmer and 3x Olympic Gold Medalist, Brendan Hansen. Brendan has been a swimmer since the age of four and swam competitively for 21 years; 15 of which were on the USA National team.

He attended the University of Texas and was a sixteen-time All-American and won fourteen NCAA national championships. Finally, he is also a former world record-holder in both the 100-meter and 200-meter breaststroke events (long course).
