Our “C” word this week is CONCENTRATION, which in the “C” You In The Major Leagues vernacular is someone who has an ability to focus, hones instincts, and prepares with a purpose.
Without a doubt, this week’s guest certainly fits that.
Shannon Vreeland has gone from club swimmer with the Kansas City Blazers to standout at the University of Georgia, to Olympic gold medalist, to an attorney.
After swimming for the Blazers under coach Pete Malone, who’s now Veronica Malone, Vreeland continued her career at the University of Georgia, where, as a freshman in 2011, she won the Southeastern Conference title in the 500 meter freestyle. That same year she was First-Team All-SEC, on the SEC’s All-Freshman Team…oh, and she was on the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll and the Spring Athletic Director’s Honor Roll.
In 2012, she made the U.S. Olympic swimming team that won the gold medal in the 4×200 freestyle relay in London. Throughout her swimming career, Shannon Vreeland won 19 international medals.
Today, Vreeland is an associate attorney in the Environment, Land Use & Natural Resources Group with a firm in Atlanta.
