USA Swimming held the U.S. Open across nine different sites in late November, but the meet was timed finals only ...

SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
July 16, 2020 — The 29 Confessions of a Distance Swimmer By Chandler Brandes, Swimming World College Intern “I didn’t choose the distance life. The distance life chose me.” Well, not quite. Distance swimmers are all born the same way: we swam the 500 for the first time around age nine or 10 and didn’t do too badly, so our coaches put us in it again at the next meet. Then again. And again. And before we knew it, we were swimming the 1000. Then the dreaded day came when we had to swim the 1650. And here we are, many years later, still staring at the bottom of the pool, anxiously waiting for the red bl ...
