It’s not all that common for EXTREME TALENT and UNWAVERING DRIVE and COMMITMENT to collide in one person. Some people have amazing talent, but lack the inspiration to work hard. Others have strong desire and work diligently to achieve goals, but there isn’t enough natural ability to be among the champions. However, when the whole package is there- incredible things happen.
Cody Miller is in the midst of an incredible swimming career. He has a wall of dozens upon dozens of swimming medals. He is currently a member of the USA Swimming National Youth Travel Team for the 2009-2010 season, competing internationally. He has already gotten experience with the Olympic Qualifiers, in which he qualified to participate in 2008.
Between his on-shore training and his time in the water, Cody averages 25-30 hours a week training. It’s a lot, but for him, it has paid off: His best events are the 100 and 200 breast stroke. He is the current Junior National Long Course Champion in both the 100m and the 200m and he even holds the record in the 15-16 age group 100 Yd Breaststroke and 200 Yd Breaststroke (Dec 2008), he broke Olympian Brendon Hanson’s 10 year records. WOW.
Cody will be attending University of Indiana (Hoosiers) in the Fall on a 5 year full ride scholarship.
Aside from being a stellar, standout athlete, Cody is a down to earth, fun, polite and all around great kid- (sorry ladies, there’s not time for a girlfriend right now). I really enjoyed my time with him in front of my lens and I am excited to watch his future unfold!
