Up & Comers: Lucie Nordmann

PHOENIX-Featured in the Up & Comers article in the May 2015 Issue of Swimming World Magazine is Lucie Nordmann, 14, of The Woodlands Swim Team. Nordmann made her Olympic Trials cuts in the 100 and 200 meter backstroke (1:03.05, 2:14.73) at the Arena Pro Swim Series in January at Austin, Texas. Two months later, she won those two events at the National Club Swimming Association Junior Nationals (streamed live on SwimmingWorld.TV) to earn a spot on the NCSA All-Star tour in Ireland that began in late April. Nordmann, a CoSIDA Academic All-American Hall of Famer, is the oldest of our girls who all swim competitively for The Woodlands. Her father, Michael, is a swim coach who swam for the University of Utah, and her mother , Amy, is a physician who was an All-American volleyball player at Washington University in St. Louis. The Woodlands head coach Tim Bauer says, “Lucie just does not like to lose. She also puts a lot of time into working her underwaters. Lucie makes sure to have fun with her teammates, and they all love going to Whole Foods in Austin.” (More to this article on page 43, by- Jason Marsteller)

However, swimmers can actually minimize resistance by using the full range of motion of the neck to breathe.
