I mean, I guess the only thing that's different right now than four years ago, is that in people's eyes I have more of a target on my back. I feel like the underdog again, because my past three or four years, my swimming hasn't been up to par. What about that transition set you back do you think? I had been with my coach back in Florida for twelve years. And took that as, "Oh, he's dumb blah, blah, blah." And I think that was the perception that got over-exaggerated a lot. Last time around you were rocking some grills, are you bringing them back? But outside of that you might see some fashionable clothing I might be wearing.
Just because of everything I've done in the sport of swimming. Whether it was changing coaches, or changing weight coaches, or because I moved from Florida to North Carolina, I don't know, but everything in that transition set me back... Swimmers famously go hairless, what's that process like?
