Have you ever wondered about the life of Olympic champions? Perhaps you’ve thought about the rigorous training and necessary determination it takes to compete, but there’s a lot more to these stories. It’s not just about the Olympics – the bigger question is, what does it take to succeed?
On Tuesday, July 10, Kentucky to the World will welcome Olympic swimming Gold Medalists Mary T. Meagher, aka “Madame Butterfly,” and Kelsi Worrell Dahlia to the stage for a conversation on what it takes to be a champion, especially when the eyes of the world are on you. We’llexplore what role Kentucky played in their success, how swimming has changed, and how they’ve handled the pressures of competition and the weight they carry as representatives of our country.
We’ll then dive even deeper to understand what success means, how it evolves, and what happens once you succeed.
