Swimming World Biweekly: The Best of 2018

$2.99

Description

This issue of SW Biweekly features a review of our most favorite swimming news stories from all of 2018, some of which include taking a look back in history to understand its importance today. Read about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the right to swim, and Chris Silva, who was the first African American to qualify for a U.S. Olympic swimming team (1984), the first to hold a U.S. record, and the first to represent the U.S. in international competition. Catch up with Katie Ledecky, Caeleb Dressel, Allison Schmitt, Kathleen Baker, Ella Eastin, Margo Geer, and Abby Van Harn!  Plus much, much more. This issue is packed, so we welcome you to take a little holiday stress off with tales from the pool.

And while it may or may not be too late for your gifts to arrive in time for the holiday, it’s not too late to honor your swimmer with the gift of your best intentions…
