On Wednesday, May 22, USA Swimming Foundation Ambassadors Nathan Adrian, Missy Franklin, Rowdy Gaines, Cullen Jones and Simone Manuel appeared on NBC’s “Today” to talk about the importance of water safety.
The appearance coincided with the 50th stop on the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash Tour Presented by Phillips 66, in New York City.
The ambassadors performed a clinic with some young swimmers in a pool set up outside the set of “Today,” near Rockefeller Center. “Today” host Dylan Dreyer joined them in the pool.
