He opened up about some of his biggest goals and motivations as a competitive swimmer, as well as his positive attitude towards competitions and life. "Reframing situations in life can help you face challenges with more optimism and success," he said.
Murphy's greatest influences in the sport, especially as a backstroker, include iconic Olympians Aaron Peirsol and Lenny Krayzelburg, the latter of which is the General Manager of the Los Angeles Current swimming team in the International Swimming League (ISL). He also complimented such contemporary swimmers as Ryan Lochte, Matt Grevers, and retired swimmer Tyler Clary.
A world record holder in the men's 100 meter backstroke, Murphy spoke about how he deals with pressure in his everyday life. "Recognizing and moderating pressure can keep you calm and help you perform at your highest potential," he acknowledged
Murphy opened up about some of his biggest obstacles in life, as well as the importance of recovery and how consistency takes precedence over mood. "No matter how you are feeling, keep practicing, showing up, and striving for greatness," Murphy remarked. "Stay healthy with 'pre-hab' habits to prevent injury."
He also underscored the importance of water safety. "I want to encourage people to stay safe around the water. If you are a parent or a guardian, keep your eye on your kids when they are around the water," he said. "I want to make sure that everyone can have fun as opposed to being in a bad situation."
