by Dan D’Addona
Swimming World takes a get-to-know-you look with Olympic medalists in our new “Podium Potpourri” series. Next up is three-time Olympian for Australia, Emily Seebohm.

012 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS PREVIEW: “EXTRAORDINARY!”
by David Rieder
Because of the uncertainties related to the Covid pandemic that first appeared more than two years ago, the 19th edition of the World Aquatics Championships has been scheduled—and rescheduled—four times between 2021 and 2023 with two different locations (Fukuoka and Budapest). Appropriately called the “extraordinary” World Championships, the world’s best swimmers (well, most of them) will gather in Hungary later this month, meaning there will be a major global long-course meet now scheduled for June 2022, July 2023, January 2024 and July 2025.

016 ICONIC MOMENTS OF THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
by John Lohn
As the next edition of Worlds is set to open in Budapest this month, June 18-July 3 (swimming, June 18-25), Swimming World has compiled a list of some of the finest swims or most-significant storylines in the history of the competition. The selections are listed chronologically, and while some deserving options are not included, these 11 certainly earned recognition.

019 THE WATERMEN: THE BIRTH OF AMERICAN SWIMMING AND ONE YOUNG MAN’S FIGHT TO CAPTURE OLYMPIC GOLD
Review by Bruce Wigo
Sportswriters and historians are constantly on a quest to rediscover a hero or event, forgotten by time, whose story could be immortalized in a book or on film. And once or twice in a decade, one of these stories captures the imagination of the public and becomes a runaway best seller—like Laura Hildebrand’s Unbroken, Daniel Brown’s Boys in the Boat or Julie Checkoway’s Three-year Swim Club. Add The Watermen by Michael Loynd to this illustrious list.

022 THE MISSED TURN: GONE TOO SOON
by John Lohn
In the latest installment of Swimming World’s burgeoning series, “The Missed Turn,” honor is paid to the career of Eric Namesnik. A two-time Olympian, Namesnik became a star at the University of Michigan and developed a reputation as a tough-as-they-come grinder who found a way to tap into every ounce of talent he possessed.

024 A WORK IN PROGRESS
by Matthew De George
Hunter Armstrong already has an Olympic gold medal and a world record to his credit, but knowing his background in swimming, he really is just getting started!

027 NUTRITION: NO “BEETING” AROUND THE BUSH!
by Dawn Weatherwax
Beets and other foods contain nitric oxide, a compound made by the body that serves as a signaling molecule. This allows the cells to receive, process and transmit signals with its environment and with itself. It has been found to signal cardiovascular and immune cells, which has an effect on health and performance.

030 MENTAL PREP: BEFORE THE BEEP WITH LILLY KING
by Shoshanna Rutemiller

COACHING

028 DEALING WITH DISMAY (Part 1)
by Michael J. Stott
This month, Swimming World begins a two-part series on supporting athletes after disappointing performances. The first installment takes a macro look as seen through the eyes of Ben Keast, now coach at SwimMAC and former assistant coach at Swimming Canada’s High Performance Centre in Vancouver.

034 SWIMMING TECHNIQUE CONCEPTS: THE DRAG COEFFICIENT—THE BEST MEASURE OF SWIMMING TECHNIQUE
by Rod Havriluk
Research shows that faster swimmers have lower active and passive drag coefficients than slower swimmers, and are, therefore, more technically proficient. The active drag coefficient also shows technique improvements by age and from instructional intervention.

039 SPECIAL SETS: ANNIE CHANDLER—MATT GREVERS’ BETTER HALF
by Michael J. Stott
Thanks to YouTube, many people know Annie Chandler as the one who Olympic gold medalist Matt Grevers proposed to on the podium after she presented him a gold medal at the 2012 Missouri Grand Prix. Chandler was quite the swimmer herself in high school, college and as a national team member. Here are some of her memorable sets while swimming for the University of Arizona.
