Ukrainian Andrii Govorov is the fastest man ever over 50 LCM Fly (22.27). He's episode #227 for a reason. He set that outside at the Trofeo Sette Colli held in Rome, Italy. Brett was in the stands cheering him on.
In this episode, Andrii explains the ups and downs of the last quad (5 years actually), dealing with injuries, and having no coach. He even stepped away from swimming to try politics.
Last year, he competed in the ISL for the Toronto Titans. Andrii is now training in Germany.
"If you're not changing, you're probably stupid." - Andrii Govorov
