A native of southern Indiana Adam swam his first event as a sophomore at Edgewood high school. Before finishing his prep career he set school records in the 500 freestyle and 400 freestyle relay and helped his team win the school’s first conference championship. In college Adam specialized in distance events and was a key part of a Vincennes University team that finished second in the country. He also has won multiple Masters state championships and has worked alongside some of the best talent the IHSAA and NCAA have to offer. As a student of the sport the unassuming Young is big on fundamentals and technique but never loses sight of the most important part, fun. According to Adam “Swimming is an individually focused sport but to me it is still all about team, team, team. The camaraderie, community and family environment is what makes this sport special.” Adam holds degrees from Vincennes University as well as Indiana University. Adam is President of Hoosier Financial and spends his spare time with his daughter Megan and enjoys biking, hiking, gardening, basketball, cooking and, of course, swimming.
