On The Marc: 'Momma On A Mission' & Olympic Gold Medalist Dana Vollmer

April 27, 2018 - 5:02 pm

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- In this episode of On The Marc, 1010 WINS' Sports Director Marc Ernay chats with Olympic gold medalist Dana Vollmer.

Not only is Vollmer a gold medal-winning swimmer, she is a "Momma on a mission" and she tells Ernay how she got that title. It has to do with her now 3-year-old son being born before the Rio Olympics.

"He was born 15 months before Rio so that's kinda how mama on a mission was born too, with him. Just really trying to show how strong moms are and prioritizing my schedule and how I fit in training and optimizing my time when I am training and you know, it wasn't about just focusing solely on the Olympics and letting my husnabd take care of the kids. It was, 'No, I'm going to be the best mom I can be and be the best athlete I can be.'"

Dana is one of the most decorated female Olympians with seven medals (five gold, one silver, and one bronze) over three summer Games (2004, 2012, and 2016).

Dana will be in NYC Saturday for Big Swim Big Kick -- a free event and fundraising benefit that supports Asphalt Green's free community programs.
