8-Time Olympic Medalist Nathan Adrian Expands From Swim Lessons Into Swim Club

I sat down with Nathan Adrian to catch up on his life post Olympics, and he’s been extremely busy with his personal businesses. While most Olympians with his resume and medal haul would have taken a break after the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials, Nathan did not have that luxury. Nathan and his partner and fellow Cal alum Will Copeland already own a pool and a thriving swim lessons business. That has kept them busy enough, but an opportunity developed for them to take the reins of a promising swim club, and these two USA Swimming National Teammates felt they needed to act immediately and get to work. In this podcast Nathan unpacks the details of their expansion into running a full-fledged USA Swimming Swim Club.

Meet Best Virginia: Nathan Adrian

It's July! Typically, it's the most humdrum month of the year for college sports fans. Quite literally, there are no sports being played - no basketball, not football, no baseball, nothing. Football recruiting is in a dead period, while basketball recruiting bounces back and forth between open and closed. That's where The Basketball Tournament steps in. Not only does the annual tournament filled with alumni teams fill a void in the overall sports calendar, but it also intrigues hardcore college fans with a vested interest in one particular team.
