Postcard from Beijing: Jake Tapp


My journey to Beijing has been truly amazing. The Olympics have been the greatest time of my life. It was well worth all the time and effort. I have learned a lot from each member of this team. It was by far the best experience as far as a swimmer. Keep this in mind while you’re training hard, “Be the best you can be in every set, stroke, dive, dry land workout, and you will see that the effort is worth it!”
