    Jan 25, 2013, 12:05 PM EST


    Being a senior has changed my perspective on a lot of things at Notre Dame.

    Everyone in the swimming community, and even many outside of the sport, only need to hear one voice to know that a swim meet is on TV – the voice of Rowdy Gaines.

    It isn’t every day that an Olympic gold medalist is at Notre Dame. It is even more rare for an Olympic gold medalist to voluntarily journey to South Bend for a swimming clinic.
