Are you a triathlete or masters swimmer who is stumped as to why your swimming times have not improved at the rate you expected, considering all the time you’ve spent at the pool? Or, perhaps you are an age-group swimmer who has hit a plateau and now swims with less enthusiasm than you once had, or you are wondering what it takes to reach the next level? Maybe you are someone who would like to participate in a triathlon but feels overwhelmed by the swim?
“Call The Suit” is the book on freestyle technique that answers the questions above and provides an understanding of the aspects at play within the beautiful sport of swimming. Written by the smallest swimmer to win Olympic gold since the 1920 Olympics, Sheila describes propulsion, feel, and the critical components of the swim stroke that the fastest swimmers in the world have mastered.
