Poolside Podcast – Episode 3 – Interview with Elijah Venos & Sam Szelag
This week on the Poolside Podcast, Sara and David welcome in swimmers Elijah Venos from Brother Rice High School and Sam Szelag from Mercy High School. They talk about preparing for the Oakland County Meet, going through the recruiting process, and some advice for their younger selves. The big topic of our conversation is COVID, how it felt getting back into the pool after quarantine, having the season cut short, staying connected with the team while stuck at home, and preparing for the season at home. We close out the pod with some recruiting tips for younger athletes, the best swimming advice they’ve received, and their future educational plans.
