Swim Speed Secrets
In Swim Speed Secrets for Swimmers and Triathletes, 4-time Olympian, gold medalist, and triathlon world champion Sheila Taormina reveals the swimming technique used by the world’s fastest swimmers.
With a well-honed, commonsense approach that comes from decades of practice and 15 years of hands-on coaching experience, Taormina’s Swim Speed Secrets gives triathletes and swimmers the power to overhaul their swim stroke and find the speed that’s been eluding them.
