“I just started to do more strength training for the swim because we realized that it’s actually one of my weak spots. Sometimes the muscles you see are not the ones that are bringing a lot of power. It’s interesting that it’s that way. Like when you see body builders [with] huge muscles. But I don’t think that they could swim 2,000 meters faster than me. So it’s not how it looks from the outside, but it’s how it works from the inside.”
