From The Outside Looking In Life After The Olympic Trials

From The Outside Looking In Life After The Olympic Trials

Guest Commentary by Olympic gold medalist Tyler Clary

The last several weeks have been quite a different experience. For the last eight years, during the summer I’ve been away from home at a swim meet, usually overseas. This definitely isn’t what I was planning on, in fact I had been planning on making The Team.

Looking back at Olympic Trials isn’t as painful as I would’ve thought, considering how the meet went. I’m proud of my performances in Omaha. I don’t think there’s a thing I would have changed about how I approached the meet and how I raced. I can say without a doubt that I gave everything. It just wasn’t quite enough this time around.

Sure, I would have loved to have made the Olympic team one more time if I had only been one spot higher (twice) – and that’s the only negative result from this past summer in my eyes. I got beat, simply put, by swimmers that were legitimately better than me at this Trials. Ryan Murphy has been around for a while and I’m so proud to watch his dominant charge into the international scene. He’s already won Gold in the 100m Back and he’s showing great promise in the 200.
