Q&A with Hannah Moore
Q: Who is your coach and which team do you compete for?
A: "I recently joined the TAC Titans and will be training under John Payne in the run up to World Championships next year."

Q: How did you get into swimming?
A: "Both of my parents were swimmers growing up and my dad swam in college, so it was only natural for the kids to try it." 
Q: What is your favorite event? 
A: "I loooove a good mile!"

Q: How many yards per week do you train?
A: "In the past I've done between 50 and 60k.  I don't expect that to change much with the switch to TAC Titans but we'll see."

Q: What does your favorite set look like?
A: "With Coach Rose at staging camp [in Dana Point, CA before Pan Pacs] he had some of us do 3x1000m descend.  I think he was being generous with a 13:00 interval.  I didn't even go the fastest of the group but I was 11:40, 11:21, and 11:08.  I love long swims!"

Q: What are your competition goals?
A: "I have a lot more to learn in open water and I really want to grow that skill set, because I've done very well there lately.  Hopefully the work I put in over the next year translates to a podium spot at Worlds next year!" 

Q: What are your practice goals to help you reach your race goals?
A: "Ever since my senior year at NC State I've had the same goal- never be afraid to fail."

Q: Favorite dryland exercise?
A: "Medicine ball exercises.  They're a fun way to work so many parts of your body, but especially your core." 

Q: Favorite post-workout meal?
A: "Don't judge me but a chicken quinoa bowl is always hoped for."

Q: Swimmer role model and why
A: "I'm a huge Leah Smith fan.  I think she does an excellent job balancing her swimming with her social life.  She never takes herself too seriously and she can talk to pretty much anyone."
Q: Non-swimmer role model and why
A: "My dad because he's so generous."

Q: Something most people don't know about you
A: "If coffee didn't exist, I don't know that I would either."
