Getting Animated about Swimming! USA Swimming’s New SwimToday Campaign Characters

TEMPE, Arizona, July 5. DEBUTED last week at the Olympic Trials in Omaha, USA Swimming premiered a couple scaly new faces to front its Swim Today campaign. Enveloped in a cloud of bubbles, children and adults everywhere may recognize the animated Disney Pixar characters from the fishy blockbuster Finding Nemo.

Olympic hopefuls were filmed singing along to the notoriously catchy “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming” tune made famous by Finding Nemo character Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres.

Although it's hard to beat Dory's star power, some Golden Olympic cameos bolster USA Swimming's short video. Natalie Coughlin carries a tune, along with teammate Nathan Adrian, and comeback kid Anthony Ervin.

Take a look at the video below, have a laugh, take a Swim Today! and watch Finding Nemo when it is re-released in 3D September 14.
