CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Olympic Gold Medalist Ricky Berens calls this weeks Arena Grand Prix by Ultraswim event more fun than competitive. The Charlotte native and South Meck High School graduate says he's looking forward to this summer's World Championship's in Barcelona.

Berens told us he only gets to come home about 3 times a year now.

But we also talked to Fort Mill's very own Matt Josa, who has Olympic dreams of his own. 18-year-old Josa recently decided to skip the big name colleges and signed with a Division 2 Queens University in Charlotte.

"I just decided to stay home because I love the coach I'm with Coach David Marsh, he's won 14 NCAA titles and you know I love Queens. It's just a great school," said Josa.

Friday Josa competed in a heat against Ryan Lochte and says it was a special experience.
