Teen raps about life as a swimmer

Just the other day I came across this article about a young swimmer who wrote and produced a song about the life of a swimmer. I thought this was worth sharing and if you’re a swimmer, you should absolutely listen to the song! Here’s an excerpt from the article on USA Swimming’s website.

Dylan Ludwick, 17, a member of the Tri-Hampton YMCA swim team in Bucks County, Pa., recently submitted a song to USA Swimming that he wrote and produced for his team’s annual taper meet. […] Ludwick offered his song as a free download, but would like to encourage swimmers to show their appreciation by donating to the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation. Ludwick grew up watching Crippen swim in the Middle Atlantic LSC and had a chance to compete against him at last year’s 5K Open Water National Championships.
