California Wildfires Causing Air Quality Concerns For Swim Practices
SWIMSWAM
Sept. 10, 2020— For a second straight year, California wildfires are bringing up air quality concerns that could affect swim practices and competitions.

When 72 Points Vanished in One NCAA Final: The Infamous Medley Relay of 2007
SWIMSWAM
Sept. 5, 2020— The NCAA Championships is one of the most intense competitions a swimmer might compete in, and falls just short of the U.S. Olympic Trials in terms of the cut-throat attitudes of the athletes and coaches vying for titles and a spot in history. First place in a relay at the NCAA Championships will earn a team 40 points, while eighth place is worth 22 points–2 points more than an individual victory. Needless to say, there is a lot of pressure to perform well on relays. The stage was set for the final of the men’s 200 yard medley relay at the Men’s 2007 NCAA Championships. 32 men on 8 t ...

March 29, 2020— The initial end, or what was perceived to be the end, wasn’t one of those feel-good tales which captures fans’ hearts. It was quite the opposite, actually, a brutal finish to what had otherwise been a remarkable career. While athletes in some sports can get away with a sub-par performance, rarely does swimming allow that luxury. Think of the baseball diamond and the numerous times we’ve heard about a pitcher working his way to a victory without his best “stuff.” Maybe his curveball doesn’t feature its typical bite, but the ability to lean on pinpoint l ...
