Nov. 15, 2012: Ous Mellouli bounced back from two years of physical and mental setbacks to win two medals at the London Olympics, and he looks back on his incredible year on today's edition of The Morning Swim Show. Mellouli, who won bronze in the 1500 free and gold in the 10K marathon swim, talks about what led him to consider swimming in open water, his thoughts on qualifying for the Olympic 10K and what it was like to use his strategy against a field of open water veterans. After two years of experiencing injuries, Mellouli was able to return to the medal podium – twice – and feel a sense of accomplishment that he said will carry through to the 2016 Rio Olympics.
