Joseph Schooling places 16th at Worlds in the 200 IM-CONGRATS Jojo! - Videos

Tonight Joseph could not better the National Record that he broke in the morning but he swam another great race and swam his second best time ever to finish 16th in the Semi Finals of the 200 IM here in Barcelona at the World Championships.

I am very proud of “Jojo” for coming back for three days at such a high level meet and keep pushing himself to find a place between the best in the World. Only a Senior to be in high school and with a bright Future ahead of him.

Here are the Videos of the races for Gisela Morales (Guatemala), Mario Todorovich (Croatia) and Joseph Schooling (Singapore). Enjoy and sorry for the not so good quality, but we have to sit too far from the pool.  Anyway at least you can see it how I saw it ;-)>

Joseph Schooling se clasifica el 16 en los 200 Estilos en elMundial-FELICIDADES Jojo!

Esta noche Joseph no pudo mejorar su Record Nacional que establecio por la manana pero aun asi nado otra gran carrera y nado su segunda major marca terminando el16 en la Semi Finales del Campeonato del Mundo aqui en Barcelona.

Muy orgulloso de “Jojo” por el trabajo que ha realizado estos ultimos tres dias a tan alto nivel.  Ademas de seguir empujando se ha establecido como una joven promesa a nivel Mundial.  Solo un Junior en High School con un future muy brillante por delante suyo.

Aqui teneis los videos de las carreras de Gisela Morales (Guatemala), Mario Todorovich (Croacia) y Joseph Schooling (Singapore). Disfrutar y perdonar por la baja calidad del video, pero nos tenemos que sentar bastante lejos de la piscine.  Al menos lo vereis como yo lo vi ;-)>

Where was the Magic?

This morning we swam well here at Sectionals but we did not have the "Magic".  i am not sure where the "Magic" went this morning but I am pretty sure that is coming to visit us tonigh ;-)

Excited to be here with our young group of swimmers.  We are used to competing always in Florida and this is so far a very good experience for our Sharks. Also what a great facility here at University of Georgia.

Also tonight Mario Todorovic swam the final of the 50 Fly at the 2013 World University Games and swam a 23"96 placing 7th.  The swim is good for not being rested and tapared and a good indication for the World Championships at the end of the month in Barcelona.  I have not been able to "Whatsapp" with Todi yet but I will let you know what he thinks.  In few days he will be swiming the 100 Free and 100 Fly.

Tonight I have no doubts that we will swim very well.  We have swimmers in the 200 IM, 50 Free and 200 Fly Finals.




Our Croatian Shark Mario Todorovic Semis at World University Games

In a couple of hours Mario Todorovic will be swimming the semifinal of the 50 Fly at the 2013 World University Games that are taking place in Kazan, Russia.  Mario swam in the first heat of the prelims a 23"96 that is a season best.

Mario has been training this past season with us here in Jacksonville and honestly doing a very good job.  He is one of the best talents I have seen in swimming.  I remember when I was coaching at West Virginia and saw him swim for the first time at Croatian Nationals I really wanted him to become a Mountaineer but the following year I left college coaching :-( It is funny how life works and now we have had the opportunity to work together.

Mario besides being a very gifted swimmer he is a great person and a true professional.  From day one he has adaptad to our way of training at Bolles and always being an amazing example to our young swimmers.  It is a privilege to coach him and have him around our young sharks.  He is not fuly rested or shaved for this meet since he will be in Barcelona for Worlds, but I still believe that he will do very well in Kazan.

GOOD LUCK Tonight!!!

Go Marios!
