010 2022 OPEN WATER SWIMMERS OF THE YEAR

012 2022 OPEN WATER HIGHLIGHTS
by Dan D’Addona
As open water swimming continues to grow and return to normalcy after the pandemic, there have been plenty of exciting stories. Here is a look at some of the best and most interesting open water moments during 2022.

014 ISHOF: SHOOTING MARK SPITZ
by Bruce Wigo
While swimming constitutes just a small portion of his incredible portfolio, no photographer has meant more to swimming history and the International Swimming Hall of Fame than Heinz Kluetmeier. In this feature, the revered Sports Illustrated photographer shares some of his stories—and photos—of legendary Mark Spitz.

017 PODIUM POTPOURRI: BOBBY FINKE
by Dan D’Addona
Olympic medalist Bobby Finke answers questions from his favorite pump-up song before a race/favorite movie/go-to food after a big meet to comparing himself to a superhero/where he keeps his medals…and what went through his mind on the Olympic podium in Tokyo.

018 THE MISSED TURN: TOM JAGER—ONE OF THE GREATEST SPRINTERS EVER
by John Lohn
In our latest installment of “The Missed Turn,” Swimming World examines the career of Tom Jager, who played a critical role in legitimizing the 50 meter freestyle as a respected event on international programs.

020 BUILDING HER LEGACY
by David Rieder
Besides the statistics that make the University of Virginia’s Kate Douglass one of the all-time greats in program history, the eight-time NCAA champion and Olympic/World Championship medalist is mindful of the legacy she will leave behind with the Cavaliers.

023 NUTRITION: STRIKING WHILE IT’S HOT—BOOSTING IMMUNITY AT THE RIGHT TIME
by Dawn Weatherwax
Sometimes athletes can do everything right, but still get sick. The goal is to minimize the illness duration and intensity to have negligible impact on training and performance outcomes. Here’s how…

024 FIGHTING FOR UKRAINE
by Matthew De George
Had the Tokyo Olympics gone differently, Mykhailo Romanchuk might have contemplated ending his swimming career. A year—and an invasion of his country—later, and the competition pool has become his battlefield, his chance to contribute to Ukraine’s war effort.

027 AGE IS JUST A NUMBER
by David Rieder
Brazil’s Nicholas Santos is 42 years old. With a silver medal at the World Championships last June in the 50 meter butterfly, he broke his own record as the oldest medalist at a World Championships. Last year, he became the oldest world champion (41)—and fastest ever in the 50 fly—when he set a world record at SCM Worlds.

COACHING

029 ANOTHER CHOICE: THE CASE FOR D-III SWIMMING (Part 2)
by Michael J. Stott
Last month, in the first of two installments, college coaches weighed in on the benefits of NCAA D-III swimming (524 teams at last count) and the realities of finding an aquatic home in college. In Part 2, we share the thoughts of Don Heidary, co-head coach/founder of San Francisco Bay area Orinda Aquatics, two of his swimmers and several others who have continued their careers at D-III schools.

034 SWIMMING TECHNIQUE CONCEPTS: BILATERAL SYMMETRY IN THE BILATERAL STROKES

Asymmetries in the bilateral strokes are common and limit performance. Swimmers can, however, see or feel asymmetries during butterfly and breaststroke, making it possible to correct these differences and improve performance.

039 SPECIAL SETS: ANDREW VANAS—COMING OF AGE
by Michael J. Stott
Dory Halbe, a former American University swimmer and NCAA qualifier, is now an assistant coach at Nation’s Capital Swim Club’s Georgetown Prep site. In the last year, she has had the pleasure of mentoring former multi-sport athlete, just-turned 14-year-old, Andrew Vanas.

TRAINING

033 DRYSIDE TRAINING:  IT’S RACE SEASON!
by J.R. Rosania
Whether you’re in high school, college or Masters swimming, you’re probably in the middle of the race season. Now is the time to think about swimming faster. A percent of your training both in the pool and dryland should be focused on speed of movement. These exercises will begin the process to enable you to create more speed through power.
