Tech Tuesday: A Look at the Free Flow Adult-Swim Program by Kerry O’Brien (Part 2) – Relax, Breathe and Press (VIDEO)

Kerry O’Brien, a member of the International Swimming Hall of Fame, coached Walnut Creek Masters for more than 40 years and has been an influential figure in U.S. Masters Swimming.
