Opening races from Paul


Covid's Homework 

In the season of Covid-19, when teams could not meet nor get into the water for regular practices, Paul S had a plan. He passed along this list of great races of history. His team and its coaches would watch a race every week and break it down. Who was who? What was happening in the pool, and out of the water. They had some interesting conversations and were able to keep the swimmers' heads in the game, without being at the pool. 

We can build upon this list and build our own lessons.

The First List included these races:
