Jeff Farrell


He’s the kind of sports hero you just don’t find very often these days. Every time Jeff Farrell gets into the pool, he rewrites the rules of aging by rewriting records.

Everyone thought his Olympic dream had been shattered, but they were about to learn something about Jeff’s character.

Find out what still drives him to compete at a world-class level.
