Interview: George Bovell

Gary Hall Sr. sits down with George Bovell III to discuss a variety of topics such as the Olympic Games in London and a funny story from the speed suit era. George is the 4th fastest 50 freestyler in history at 21.2 seconds. He is an avid Freediver, something that we have a great affinity to here in the Keys. George grew up spearfishing in Trinidad and Tobago and talks about how that sport benefits his swimming.  George Bovell also touches on overcoming adversity and injury by explaining how he recovered from a dump truck crashing into his car head on. George has competed in 4 Olympic Games and is a bronze medalist for Trinidad and Tobago. He continues to compete to this day. You can find him winning medals in the World Cup circuit as he trains for Rio 2016.
