Pushing The Limits!

Tired faces and elevated heart rates on winded athletes are clear indications of men and women at work. And for swimmers looking for faster times and higher places at season-ending meets, that’s a good thing.

Swimming World’s Michael J. Stott interviews many well-known coaches about their different approaches to new racing and practice stragies. The coaches interviewed include Bill Rose, Tyler Fenwick, and Dave Kelsheimer. The coaches all comment on being willing and open to change, knowing that it’s okay to fail, and going the extra mile.

Michael J. Stott is an ASCA Level 5 coach whose Collegiate School (Richmond, Va.) teams have won nine state high school championships.

014 TOP 9 OLYMPIC UPSETS: #3 FELIPE MUÑOZ: GOLD FOR MEXICO
by Chuck Warner
Racing for a medal at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City seemed far-fetched, with the USA, Australia, Soviet Union and Germany expected to dominate. Yet hometown hero Felipe Muñoz, swimming just 10 blocks from his home, somehow out-touched the world record holder from Russia, Vladimir Kosinsky, to win Mexico’s first-ever Olympic gold medal in swimming.

016 TOO EASY II
by David Rieder and Michael J. Stott
After Texas dominated last year’s men’s NCAAs with a 129-point margin of victory, Swimming World Magazine ran the following headline in its May issue: “Too Easy.” This year’s meet proved to be even easier for Texas, as the Longhorns won by nearly 200 points, giving Coach Eddie Reese his 12th team championship and making him the winningest NCAA Division I coach in men’s swimming and diving history.

024 DAWG DAZE
by Annie Grevers
On paper, Georgia looked to finish no better than fourth place, 100 points behind Cal, last year’s women’s NCAA champs. However, in the pool, the competition was quickly bedazzled by the Bulldogs’ brilliance, as Coach Jack Bauerle’s bunch won their seventh national title.
