Sorry for the delay in posts. We have been talking to the applicants and it is taking time to go through all of them. We need to go through the process and meet with as many people as possible. I have talked to a lot of people already and I am scheduled to talk to more. I have spoken with all types of swim fans, a lot of coaches and journalists and a couple expats living in Asia and Europe. There have been a number of people that have been away from the sport working office jobs that are ready to get back in the sport. Everyone has had a great ...

I just want to give a great big THANK YOU to Garrett McCaffrey for all that he has done for the swimming community through FloSwimming. When I met Garrett a year and a half ago, I was thrilled that there was somebody out there with enough drive, perseverance, and love for the sport to attempt what he did for the last two years. Sure, a person like Garrett is going to need a good solid base of operations like Flocasts, but he was the one we all came to recognize on the pool deck. Garrett was the one, like Mark Floreani said, pulling the long nig...

Moving forward or going backwards?

So, come the end of the year Fina is going to decide if we are going to go back to “woven” swim suits or if we get to keep the new technology suits. Simple question, should we go back or should we allow companies like Jaked and Blueseventy who have suddenly arrived on the scene to continue their business? A few things for you to think about before you answer this question. Why is it that before these new technology suits came out there were only a handful of major suit companies? Speedo, Arena, TYR. Suddenly when Fina started appro...

Tyler Clary. A man on a mission. Clary is the real deal, and at just twenty, he's only getting started. Tyler had his breakout meet at the 2009 NCAA's, taking down one of the most untouchable records in the books with his astonishing 3:35.98 400 IM performance, while challenging two others. No one else has ever erased Phelps AND Lochte from the record book before. In fact, once Michael grabs a WR, he doesn't let go. The only swimmer to ever break a Phelps LCM WR besides Michael Phelps is Ian Crocker, who snatched the 100 fly record away one day...

Today should have been an exciting, happy day. I was going to step on deck for the first time in my new job. The meet i'd been looking forward too since last year in Omaha was finally upon us. We were going to pick our World Team. Instead I'm sick to my stomach. I've felt this way since finding out late Sunday night that Garrett would no longer be a part of this site. I've felt the full gamut of raw, negative emotion: disbelief gave way to sadness, which gave way to anger. Now I'm desperately searching for a way to make things better. The tenor...

If I had written down my ideal first job while growing up, it would've fallen short of the one I actually got. After graduating with a broadcast journalism degree and 4 years of D1 college swimming, this was my job description: travel around and make videos about the best swimmers and coaches in the world. Here was the objective: do what ever is best for the sport of swimming. At the time, it was the only job of its kind and it was exactly what our sport needed. Since Floswimming debuted in the fall of 2007, our sport's exposure has increased e...

Phelps vs Federer

Phelps vs Federer

Ok, not really. WC Trials haven't started yet, and in the meantime, I just want to write about yesterday's Wimbledon final between Federer and Roddick. Both players brought their A-game—which meant a sustained clash at the highest level of tennis in history. Federer truly earned the all-time record. It is fitting that the Slam that put him over the top was against an opponent virtually equal to his own abilities at the top of his game at Wimbledon. Those two guys slugged it out round after round, neither gaining the upper hand. In the end...

My Club Program Is Way Better Than Your Club Program

You know whats really been burning me up recently? Your club program. It was featured on floswimming in the last two years, and mine wasn't. That really makes me mad for one reason: my club program is way better than your program. Oh, I know you've had your successes. But lets be serious, your team is only a USA Swimming Gold Club, and my team is so amazing that they created the USA Swimming Diamond Club because it was that good. Can you beat that? We had a dual meet last week with Team Australia. They stopped scoring after the first event beca...

Professional Swim League?

Recently, the SCAQ blog has made a couple of posts calling for us to consider pushing for a professional swim league. We are now in the dawn of the professional swimming athlete, tech suits, and more importantly, the age of Michael Phelps. We are getting the press. I feel that we have reached the point where we are getting many of the negatives of being a premier sport, but we haven’t quite capitalized on all of the positives. Brent Rutemiller at Swimming World recently made the case that there has never been a better time than now to tak...

World Champs Trials Preview

With World Championship Trials just one week away, I thought it would be appropriate to do a preview. However, rather than bore you with a rundown of all the events, I'm going to give you a couple of what I think are the most interesting subplots of the Trials meet. The meet itself is crucial from a psychological standpoint- last year the American squad mostly watched a world record onslaught from afar and then put on a show in Omaha. So far this summer we've seen some serious spikes from a number of traditionally bit players internationally: B...

I discovered a new term (and an interesting person in the process) the other day. Un-marketing. I'm not sure if Scott Stratten coined it or not but the term sums up what you need to do. If you want to drive ticket sales, get more members, maximize fundraising or increase attendance then you have to stop marketing and start engaging. That is possible now more than ever with the new communication channels available today.Be interesting.Write something I want to read.Make my life easier.Do something cool.Exist where I already am.And... talk to me....
