It was those four years of high school that I dedicated myself to being better. I was up at 5:30am doing whatever it took to get bigger, stronger, faster.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?

From high school to college, tell us how you went from the high school pool to the Olympic one?
What is your biggest takeaway from this experience?
2008 was the year you won the Olympic Silver. Tell us about the team and what it took to win that silver?
What would you say is the best part about what you do?
Lastly, what does the American Dream mean to you?
Tony: The American Dream has in and of itself a willingness to succeed. That, coupled with being selfless and working with other individuals for the collective good of the group vs. the collective good of you is the most important part of the entire dream.
