Advice to Coaches (and Swimmers):

~By Nico Messer

As coaching starts to become my primary responsibility at the pool, I realize there are five important things to keep in mind doing this job.

Although I wrote this post with the goal of sharing some of my experiences and help swim coaches, I realize that this information can also help athletes as well.

~By Michelle Kaufman

The plan was a world-record 103-mile swim in roughly 60 hours. Mother Nature got in the way. But Nyad, a successful marathon swimmer, wants to keep going. She calls it her "personal Olympics," says nothing but a hurricane could stop her. She finally concedes and aborts her dream. Her heart sinks as her friends lift her into the boat and applaud. Thirty-two years later, Nyad, who recently turned 61, will attempt to conquer the swim that defeated her.
