What does it take to have a winning perspective? The University of Louisville head combined swim coach Arthur Albiero joins Champion’s Mojo to talk about his successful men and women’s swim programs and how winning is about more than recognition for an accomplishment.
“Winning is not just standing at the top of the podium… it’s overcoming adversity or something perceived negative in your life,” Albiero said in his poolside interview with host Kelly Palace. “It’s digging deeper… if things don’t go your way, reinvent yourself.”
Albiero talks about his 16 seasons at the University of Louisville and what it took to build a winning culture. He also discusses his family dynamic now that his son Nick Albiero is swimming at college, and potentially Olympic, levels.
