This article presents an interview with Swimming coach Mark Schubert who has consistently coached great distance swimmers since breaking onto the national scene as head coach of Mission Viejo in 1972. The coach answered several questions on racing strategy. It kills him when a swimmer whom he trained gets run down at the end of a race. On female swimmer Lindsay Benko he said that he could tell her how to swim a race and he better not be wrong, because she would go out and swim it exactly as he instructed her. Larsen Jensen, who won the silver medal in the men's 1500 at Athens, was actually faster than gold medalist Grant Hackett for the middle 1300 meters.
