Mel Stewart was a prominent 200m butterfly swimmer of his era. A 14-time national champion (a United States Swimming Record still unbroken), he won the 200 m event at the 1991 World Championships in Perth. Next year he became the gold medalist at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and won a second gold and a bronze. He held the 200 m world record at 1:55.69 from 1991 to 1995, currently held by Michael Phelps at 1:51.51 After the Olympics, he became a screenwriter and met his wife Tiffany, a producer, in Los Angeles. Together Mel and Tiffany have a production company that serves (no shock here) the Olympic market. He moved his wife and daughter Bayley to Austin, Texas after the 2008 Olympics to take advantage of the collaborative vibe of the creative community, and hasn’t looked back. In a few short years, Gold Medal Media has become a growing, successful company with commercial work in their niche market as well as the production of its first television show “The Tiburon Mile,” which aired to 66 million households in the fall of 2011. Who better than someone like Mel to give us a little insight into the drive of some of the world’s top atheletes in this interview:
