PHOENIX, Ariz., July 17. SWIMMINGWORLD.TV will begin providing FREE video technique and news clips as an experiment to move away from its current Pay-Per-View format.
“Our website is currently attracting a half-million views per week. We feel confident that these numbers will support sponsorship of our content and thus allow FREE viewing. As a result SwimmingWorld.TV will better serve the entire swimming community by providing video content that complements our news coverage,” commented Brent Rutemiller, Publisher of Swimming World Magazine
SwimmingWorld.TV will be at the ConocoPhillips USA National Championships, Speedo Junior Championships, FINA Masters World Championships and the perhaps the FINA Pan Pacific Games in Vancouver during the month of August. “We will be covering these events as news stories and not as live events due to broadcasts rights. We will be announcing a sponsor for these news events in an upcoming Press Release,” Rutemiller concluded.
In the meantime, enjoy SwimmingWorld.TV as it evolves to the next level. Look for FREE technique clips, news stories, perspectives and personal stories such as the one about a young high school swimmer recovering from shoulder surgery that is now live.
Sarah Lindberg went from hoisting trophies to 5 pound dumbbells, before she could say tendonitis. “It was a subtle pain, nothing to worry about, then around October, I raced in High School, got on the blocks and did my own thing. That evening I felt a huge pain shoot up my shoulder,” Lindbergh recalls.
Such is the plight of thousands of swimmers, who grind the gears of their shoulders thousands of times every time they hop in the pool. In Sara’s case, she not only had tendonitis, but her doctor says she had a labral tear in her right shoulder as well.
Swimming World TV caught up with Sarah right after her surgery, as she started physical therapy.
