Title: Current SPIRE Swim Ambassador
American sprint swimmer, two-time Olympic champion, and 13-time World Champion Caeleb Dressel has signed on to serve with SPIRE Institute and Academy as an International Swim Ambassador. Dressel will work with SPIRE’s interdisciplinary team to help develop innovative, leading-edge programming and a customizable method of reporting and testing to assess athlete performance. In addition to mentoring SPIRE’s student athletes virtually, Dressel will also visit the Geneva, OH complex to mentor the Academy’s student athletes one-on-one.
I am excited to join the work SPIRE is doing for athletes all over the world, and I’m especially honored to work with these other great Ambassadors in helping to mentor and provide programming direction for the swimming Academy. The opportunity to work with student athletes, as well as top-notch coaching staff, checks a major box for me and I’m ready to get started!
