Elk Grove Aquatic Campaign


I’M KIND OF KIDDING. WE DO KNOW CAMBI BROWN IS LIVE IN ELK GROVE. Reporter: GOOD MORNING. IT’S REALLY COLD OUT HERE. YOU CAN SEE OUR BREATH BUT WHEN YOU LOOK HERE YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE STEAM COMING OFF THE POOL. SO OF COURSE, I HAD TO ASK, HOW HOT IS THE POOL RIGHT NOW? IT’S ABOUT 80 DEGREES OR SO AND THEY SAY THE STUDENTS ARE ACTUALLY DOING A LOT BETTER THAN WE ARE BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THEY’RE GETTING THEIR WORK OUT IN THIS MORNING SO THEY’RE A LITTLE BIT WARMER. YOU GUYS JUST GOT BACK MATT FROM A REALLY BIG MEET IN WASHINGTON. HOW DID YOU GUYS DO? WE DID REALLY WELL. THE MEET WAS A BIG SUCCESS FOR US. WE HAD A LOT OF TIME IMPROVEMENTS AND IT WAS REALLY VALUABLE FOR THE KIDS. IT MIMICS THE COLLEGE CONFERENCE FOR THE COLLEGES. SAME EVENT LINE UP AND TRIALS FINALS SO IT’S GOOD PRACTICE BECAUSE WE DO WANT TO BE PREPPING THEM TO BE COLLEGE SWIMMERS. Reporter: AND NOW YOU GUYS HAVE THREE BIG MEETS COMING UP. ONE OF WHICH IS THE JUNIOR OLYMPICS. THE WAY THIS FUNDRAISER WORKS IS REALLY INTERESTING BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO SWIMMING WE DON’T SEE HUGE ENDORSMENT DEALS LIKE WHAT WE WOULD SEE FOR BASKETBALL OR FOOTBALL, SO THIS FUNDRAISER IS A WAY TO SORT OF HELP STUDENTS THAT ARE IN THOSE SPORTS THAT DON’T GET THOSE BIG BACKERS, IS THAT RIGHT? ABSOLUTELY. IT’S REALLY HARD FINANCIALLY FOR SOME HIGH LEVEL SWIMMERS WHO’S GOAL IS MAYBE TO MAKE THE OLYMPICS OR COMPETE INTERNATIONALLY. SO THE ORGANIZATION DREAM FIELD THAT WE’RE WORKING WITH, WE FUND RAISE TOGETHER AND PART OF THE FUND RACING IS TO SUPPORT ATHLETES LIKE THAT AND IT ALSO SUPPORTS SMALLER LOCAL TEAMS LIKE US OR ANY OTHER TEAM OUT THERE. Reporter: HOW OFTEN WHEN YOU’RE COACHING, BY THE WAY SOMETIMES WHEN GOOD DAY COMES OUT THEY DO PRACTICE THAT STARTS AT 9:00 A.M. BUT BECAUSE WE’RE HERE THEY START THEIR PRACTICE AT 7:00? NO, THEY’RE REALLY GOING TO BE PRACTICING AT 7:00 A.M. BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO SHARE WITH THE HIGH SCHOOLS AS WELL. SO THIS IS WHAT THEIR SATURDAYS ARE LOOKING LIKE FOR A WHILE. YOU HAVE A LOT OF LAYERS ON THIS MORNING MATT. HOW MUCH DO YOU WISH THAT YOU COULD BE IN THE POOL RIGHT NOW. I’VE DONE A LOT OF TIME IN THE POOL OVER THE YEARS, BUT SOMETIMES IT DOES LOOK RATHER APPEALING. OVER CHRISTMAS BREAK WHEN WE WERE TRAINING EARLIER IN THE MORNING THERE WAS ICE ON THE DECK ALMOST EVERY DAY SO IT WAS VERY COLD. BECAUSE YOU ALMOST HAD LIKE SNOW TYPE SHOES ON. A LOT OF LAYERS. HE HAS THESE GLOVES OVER HERE TOO, THAT HE WEARS AS HE’S GOING THROUGH BECAUSE YOU BASICALLY WALK UP AND DOWN WITH THE KIDS INSTRUCTING THEM, GIVING THEM SOME TIPS. WHAT ARE YOU GUYS THINKING FOR THESE NEXT COUPLE MEETS YOU GUYS HAVE? YOU LOOKING PRETTY GOOD? GOOD DAY (TOSS TO 3
