PHOENIX, Arizona, January 2. EVERY January, Swimming World takes on the task of filtering a year's worth of coverage into less than 10 page of print. This year, we took a particularly hectic year and broke it down within nine pages.
While world records dominated the previous few years, this last year proved to be one of the most hectic when it came to worldwide and nationwide storylines that impacted the entire sport. From the techsuit ban to sexual abuse issues, from the pro plan to Mark Schubert leaving USA Swimming as well as Fran Crippen becoming the first athlete in the sport to die during a competition, the past year proved to be incredibly active for the leading independent resource for reporting in the sport.
