020 ISHOF: THE HISTORY OF SWIMMING IN PRE-COLUMBIAN MESOAMERICA
by Bruce Wigo
Swimming is universal to all races and cultures. However, in these times, we see very few representatives from the indigenous populations of Africa, the Americas or Oceania competing in aquatic sports at the Olympic Games. This fact has led some to question the physical capabilities of these people as swimmers, yet there is no truth to these racist stereotypes.

025 NUTRITION: SPORTS DRINKS—NEEDED OR NOT NEEDED?
by Dawn Weatherwax
Sports drinks do have a purpose in sports. They provide quicker-absorbed fuel for the muscles within 45 minutes of ingesting along with important electrolytes, especially sodium. They also help keep athletes hydrated. Sports drinks are not mandatory, but they can definitely help at appropriate times.

026 ONE LAST TIME
by David Rieder
Having already swum on the grandest stage of her sport, the Olympics, and earning a silver medal, Claire Curzan returned for one more year of high school swimming and put together one of the finest prep seasons ever, setting American and national high school records, enjoying the camaraderie with her Cardinal Gibbons High School teammates and being named Swimming World’s Female High School Swimmer of the Year.

028 BRINGING OUT THE BEST
by Dan D’Addona
The best competition brings out the best in great swimmers. That is exactly what happened this past high school season with Zionsville junior Will Modglin, who was named Swimming World’s Male High School Swimmer of the Year.

030 AMERICA’S FINEST
by Dan D’Addona
In addition to the nation-leading performances from Swimmers of the Year Claire Curzan and Will Modglin, there were several other stellar swims turned in by the SOY runners-up, led by freshman Teagan O’Dell of Santa Margarita Catholic, Calif., and senior Quintin McCarty from Discovery Canyon, Colo.

032 TOP HIGH SCHOOL RECRUITS
by Chandler Brandes
Swimming World takes a look at the swimmers it considers to be the 10 best high school recruits—both male and female—from the Class of 2022 and where they’ll be attending college in the fall.

COACHING

036 SWIMMING TECHNIQUE CONCEPTS: THE BIOMECHANICS AND MEDICINE IN SWIMMING SYMPOSIA
by Rod Havriluk
The Biomechanics and Medicine in Swimming Symposia have a long and unique history. The first conference was conducted in Belgium in 1970, and the conferences have continued for over 50 years. The conference series has been the largest and most successful global effort to promote the application of science in swimming.

038 REVERSE PERIODIZATION (Part 1)
by Michael J. Stott
This month, Swimming World explores the concept of reverse periodization—its acceptance, application and place in modern-day aquatic training.

041 SPECIAL SETS: LUCY RINGS THE BELL
by Michael J. Stott
This month’s “Special Sets” features Fort Collins Swim Team swimmer, Lucy Bell, coached by Mike Novell. The Fossil Ridge High School prep star, who has committed to Stanford this fall, is Colorado’s top-ranked female recruit in the Class of 2022 and eighth-ranked nationally.

043 Q&A WITH COACH MEG SISSON FRENCH, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
by Michael J. Stott

TRAINING

035 DRYSIDE TRAINING: RACE PREPARATION
by J.R. Rosania
This month’s exercises will help swimmers prepare to perform at their peak level of ability. Included in the program are explosive- and speed-oriented movements. The focus is on starts, turns and stroke rate. Ideally, these exercises will increase the swimmers’ strength and, along with a taper, bring out their speed and efficiency.
