    The Race club now offers to produce for you a DVD of your child, showing underwater, above water, starts, turns and transitions in all strokes desired. Further, we will help you select the schools and coaches to send the DVD to, along with an introduction. Far better than just a letter with your times on it, the DVD will provide useful information to the coach about your technical skills, attention to details and potential for improvement. The DVD may make the difference between your child or another receiving that athletic aid. The Race Club’s familiarity with swimming and college coaches and our respect among coaches will help us to find the right school and program for your child. Please visit their website or contact them for more information about producing a DVD to create a visual resume.

    In previous international events, swimmers were allowed one false start and disqualified after two. One false start and you are out. That was and still is the rule adopted by FINA started back in 2000 for the first time at the Sydney Olympics. Watching the IAAF World Championships these days, I heard that by next year the same rule will apply to track and field. Although some swimmers certainly tried to play the false start game, I never felt it was use as much to intimidate your opponents in swimming as it is in track and field. Obviously, if your Usin Bolt you don’t need to worry about intimidating your opponents but I still wonder if it’s going to bring change for some of the track and field athletes.
