Being a student-athlete requires a lot of focus and training on and off the field of play. But for freshman swimmer Jordyn Green, it is a welcome challenge. Green has been in the pool all her life and is dedicated to keeping it that way.

How long have you been swimming?

“I’ve been swimming for about 14 years.”

You used to live in Reno. What brought you to ASU?

“Swimming and the weather. The training here is different. We train more often and at a higher quality.”

What makes the practices higher quality than you were used to?

“We train a lot more on specific events. Before we would practice on being well-rounded, now we focus more on our individual events.”

How do you think this training has made you better?

“I’m training with those who actually want to swim instead of just doing it because they had to, like in club swimming. You can’t sit out races in practice, and everyone is on time and dedicated.”

You sound like you really love to swim. What got you into the sport?

“My brother and dad swam, so I had to like it. Then I got good at it and really liked it.”

Did swimming with your family give you guys a special bond?

“Not really. My brother didn’t stay with it for too long, but it kind of brought us together because we would all be at the meets together.”

What do you think you would be doing if you were not swimming at ASU?

“I don’t know. I’d probably just be in school. I can’t imagine not swimming.”
