Before we dig in and really get this blog going, please allow me to introduce myself and share my background.
My name is Emily Milak. I started swimming when I was three and fell in love with competition. My love for the sport makes me passionate about helping others discover swimming and I hope to be a resource for our readers.
I have competed at junior and senior nationals, traveled with the US National team to World Championships twice, and won two individual NCAA championships in the 500 Free. I currently hold an NCAA record for one of those titles. In my post swimming career, I spent several years as a head age group coach at a highly successful swim club and later became a mother to a wonderful little girl. I continue to swim and compete, most recently becoming a United States Masters Swimmers national champion. My knowledge base is broad from a wide range of personal experience. I’ve worked clinics and mentored athletes, I love to talk to people, tell stories, and answer questions. I’m here to help you become stronger swimmer – just let me know how i can help!

For now I’d like to share my thoughts about my latest “go to” goggle, the Kiefer Conqueror.
Personally, I use Conqueror goggles in all situations, for swim practice, fitness swimming, and racing. A fully customizable fit is achieved due to interchangeable nosepieces and durable silicone goggle straps that are easily adjusted. Goggle gaskets are soft and mold snuggly to the eyes without causing painful pressure, comfortable for both two hour swim workout or a quick 50 yard sprint – and everything in between. The optics provide incredible clarity in the water and are treated with anti-fog for lasting clear vision. With all of these benefits, the Conqueror has become a standard in my gear bag and my racing pack. Compared to other goggles with similar molded eyecups, our Conquer has so much to offer at only a fraction of the cost.
