PHOENIX, Arizona, February 1. FOR the third time in her career, FAST's Katie Hoff has earned a spot on Swimming World Magazine's cover. This time, she drew the cover by way of an outstanding cover story by Swimming World senior writer John Lohn.
Lohn looks into how Hoff has re-emerged onto the American swimming scene after a few down years that included a training camp change from North Baltimore to Fullerton, Calif.
Hoff has been on the cover of Swimming World Magazine two previous times. First in August 2004, then as part of a three-person cover in July 2007 that included Natalie Coughlin and Kate Ziegler. Hoff has now joined the likes of Tom Dolan, Shane Gould, Grant Hackett, Misty Hyman, Lenny Krayzelburg, Steve Lundquist, John Naber, Aaron Peirsol and Ian Thorpe who each have been featured on the cover of Swimming World three separate times.
