Swimmer Asia Seidt: “I am a lot better eater than cook.”

Asia Seidt is an eight-time first-team All-American swimmer at Kentucky and was the 2019 SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and 2019 Arthur Ashe Female Sports Scholar of the Year nationally.

But what does the senior from Louisville do if she is not swimming or studying?

“We do have limited time. All my friends are on the swim team so we all hang out together. We like to eat, so we go out to eat a lot or cook,” Seidt said. “We like to hike. We went on team trip my freshman year to Red River Gorge and hiked around.”

Her cooking expertise impressed me — or at least it didn’t until she explained she was a “terrible” cook.

“I am pretty bad. My roommates are good at cooking. I love baking. I am a lot better eater than cook,” Seidt said.

Another reason she’s now my favorite swimmer because we do have that trait in common.
