WORST HABIT? Texting during meals. It makes my parents very angry.

FAVORite QUOTE(S)? "I wouldn't say anything is impossible. I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and put the work and time into it." Michael Phelps.

WHAT IS YOUR RING TONE? Pontoon by Little Big Town.

how many texts do you send/receive per month? Too many to count.

What is your favorite hobby in your spare time? Running and hanging out with my friends.

favorite memory in your sport, and why? Qualifying for the Ohio High School Swim meet as a freshman, and being the first native born American male from Belmont County to do so.

What's something no one would believe about you? Everyone knows everything about me.

favorite athlete, and why? Ryan Lochte because he has shown that with hard work and training you can beat the best.

best advice you've ever received? "To shoot for whatever I want and go for my goals because you are the only one who can achieve them." My parents.

Who do you admire most, and why? There are two people who I admire the most. My coach Bobbi Jo Johnson because she dedicates her life every day to swimming. She supports me and encourages me to do the best I can do. She always knows the right thing to say, and she believes in me. Also, my 'Y' coach Rick Reidel because he has been there for me at about every swim meet, and when I have a bad swim, he always knows the right thing to say. He is always there for me and when I have doubts in myself and don't believe in myself, I know he always does. He's not just my coach, but I consider him part of my family.

What's your favorite part of your sport ? Being able to do what I love and being able to swim with my best friends and be part of a team. No matter if you do good or bad, they are always there to pick you up and make you feel better.

Where do you see yourself in ten years? Graduated from college where I swam and working as a medical doctor of veterinary medicine.

CREDENTIALS: Christopher added to his OVAC medal collection with another strong showing in the OVAC Bill Brubaker Swimming Championship last weekend at Steubenville. He won gold in the 500 freestyle and took the silver in the 200 individual medley.
