I just recently received my photos back from my SWANS photo-shoot, and I’ve decided to share them with all of you. For those of you who are unaware, SWANS is a Japanese company which produces eye-wear for different kinds of sports… they’re pretty great goggles if you ask me ☺

I’d like to thank Stephen Frink (www.stephenfrink.com) for his work and trying to make me look presentable in these photos. Please respect his work by noticing the copyright of these photos and the rights of their use by SWANS:

Anything better than your birthday being on a Saturday?

At the “beginning” of my international swimming career eight years ago, I was telling myself that one day I would turn 24, and that I would be in the prime of my swimming. It was hard being a 16-year-old who was going to the 2000 Olympics because I was a 3rd year high school student who knew very little about himself or about life. Around this age of course you’re in the process of growing physically and mentally, both as a man and an athlete. I think confusion and insecurity are two good words to describe that period in history for me. The good thing is a lot has happened since I was 16 years old and all of those things have helped prepare me for the situation that I will be facing in two and a half months from now. I spent 5 years of my life at one of the greatest universities in the world and I went from 175 lbs in high school (79kg) to 215 lbs (97kg) and grew about 5 inches (12cm) in height! I have traveled around the world and raced hundreds of times, and I wont even bother to explain the amazing things I have learned along the way.

Well, that day has finally come, I’m finally 24 years old, and all I could say is, I’m a whole lot less confused than ever before! I’m stronger and smarter than ever before… I think its going to be a good year for me.

For those of you who have been to the upper Florida Keys, you know how uneventful this place can get. But, the nice thing is I’ve got a lot of great friends and teammates here doing this training camp with me, and I’m very fortunate to be able to spend my birthday with them… I think a barbeque and trip to a nightclub is a fine way to start this great age!

Over-Anxious... Depressed... and Exhausted.
Written by Milorad Cavic

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote about anything, and the truth is, there hasn’t been a whole lot going on other than a lot of training... living the way I do (eating-sleeping-swimming) is hardly food for thought, and is borderline crazy! But, since this website was created so that my friends and fans could follow me on my journey, I’ve decided to return to write about myself once again…

You may be slightly shocked and curious as to what’s going on when just looking at the title that I’ve given this journal entry… but real life is real life, and we have to confront it eventually. I went to see a doctor today because I’m feeling depressed, over-anxious, and exhausted. This is the way it’s been for a long time, each of them to a different degree at different times, but overall I’ve been feeling this for years, and it’s affecting my life and swimming more heavily than ever.

Although I’m not entirely sure what is going on with me, I do know what I haven’t really slept in a long, long time. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I slept 6 hours straight, or over the course of a night, without waking up 3-4 or even 5-6 times. Those who know me and have spent enough time around me know that I’m always yawning, and I can’t stop it or help it. Is it a sleeping disorder? Maybe. It may very well be a thyroid deficiency. Whatever it may be, I know that it has been negatively affecting my swimming and my personal life overall. The Olympics is only 3 months away, and everyday I feel a great thrill that my time is coming, but at the same time, my exhaustion is pushing me into a state of depression. When I’m working out, I’m continually training better than I’ve ever trained in the past, but its like an emotional rollercoaster. Before a hard swim set, I would be thinking, “I’ve had enough, I’d like to just go home” and then when I step up onto the starting block, I think, “I’m not going to quit” and feel that there is no way that guy next to me is going to better than me! Just like that, like a switch of a light – on and off… but the opposite is also true sometimes.

On the outside, people see me as the guy I really am – always joking and smiling – but I feel that those things are necessary for me to cope with the difficult issues I’ve been facing for a long time internally. Two of my greatest passions in life are helping people and RACING! The beauty of these two things is that they have brought me to meet some incredible people. Some of these people have helped me during some tough times and I will never forget them for it. On the other side of things, it brings me great pain to know that I have pushed some pretty amazing people away from me because of my weaknesses. I’ll have to wait a few days to see my results, and perhaps figure out how to get some things in my life in order.

Fortunately for me, I’m not the only one in my training group that is doing the tough workouts that we do. I’m blessed to have such great training partners and positive coaches on deck. They’re my family and my brothers here in the Florida Keys. Thanks for being there guys!!!  
MySpace Fraud

To all my friends out there, it has been brought to my attention that there is a MySpace account in my name. This is a fake account, and I apologize ahead of time if anyone thought this to be real. You can reach me only on this website and on my Facebook account. I'm sorry once again...
Your reactions.

A few days have gone by since LEN has released it’s disciplinary decision on my actions, and I have to admit that I am completely blown away with all of the support I’ve been getting. I’ve been doing my best to respond to all emails sent to me, along with all the Facebook messages I have received… and although it may take more time, I am trying my best to respond to as many as I possibly can! The support has given me a new strength and motive to be the greatest swimmer and man that I can be.

Your reactions are exactly what I’ve been talking about and this is the way we need to be. Be positive and unite when we are weak! Only together are we strong, and only strong can we move forward. My t-shirt at the European Championships has been spoken of as scandalous and misplaced, but if you understood my actions in this way, I regret to inform you that this isn’t about war, or to provoke violence. “KOSOVO IS SERBIA” is what I feel. It is in our history and a part of who we are. The Serbian government has fallen apart, and is in the process of re-election and being re-assembled. My point is that we have to take what we have in common, and work together in rebuilding our country… but this time, whatever the people decide we should do, we should do it together!

It was my personal duty as an ambassador of Serbia to express myself and to express my support for my people. This isn’t about the rest of the world. If I cared to upset you, my shirt would have been in English. If you’re looking for an apology, then you should probably write an email to someone who has committed a real crime. There are evils in this world which really threaten our safety and security, and really deserve more attention than they’re already getting… I leave it to you to decide which battles you choose. My battle is with pain and misery in Serbia. What’s yours?

Remember, there is no such thing as bad people, only bad leaders. I dont care where you're from - EVERYONE WANTS JUST TO BE HAPPY… what are you doing to ensure this? I hope I did my part to uplift my people… and I will never regret this action.

Thank you all once again for your support!
