2-time Olympic gold medalist.  Member of the 2008 Beijing Olympic 4×100 freestyle relay that will go down in history as one of the greatest moments in Olympic history.  American record holder.  NCAA Champion.  And the first American under 48 seconds in the 100 meter freestyle.  Garrett Weber-Gale, one of the world’s most decorated competitive swimmers, joins the podcast to talk with Rich about elite performance, professional athleticism, life (and food) at the Olympic Training Center, how he healed his high blood pressure with better nutrition, and his passion for fine cuisine cooking, quality eats and helping people.

NOTE: I am well aware that the audio on this Skype interview is less than ideal.  Issues with Skype not picking up my (Rich’s) microphone properly.  Apologies.  Again, I’m a newcomer at all this and can only promise to have it dialed in better next time.  Thanks for understanding (& try not to hate).
