Siberia to LA. Olympic swimmer. AMA
Hello Reddit! My name is Vladimir Morozov, I am an Olympic medalist 2012, three-time World Champion currently training for my second Olympic games for swimming. I've been told that I have a unique story and maybe should write a book about my experiences. Growing up in the depths of Siberia I lived with my extended family of 5 in a tiny 2 bedroom apartment, with a goal of one day becoming an Olympic Champion. By the time I was a teenager my mother's stable very small business was overrun by criminals of the dark 90's taking the last and all we had. At the age of 14 we both moved to Los Angeles, CA where we stay to this day. I came in as a freshman in high school (no English), got a full athletic scholarship to University of Southern California, turned professional after 3 years and now am a week away from my second Olympic Trials. If there is anything that captures your interest please ask.
Here is some info and social platforms:
---Thank you all for your kind words and questions! I hope that I was able to answer most of the questions throughly with new insights for you. This was a pleasant experience to say the least. Bye Reddit!
