***NOTE FROM THE BLOG AUTHOR:
Who am I, you ask? What are my credentials?
Hi everyone, my name is Lukas. I have been a competitive swimmer for over 12 years (having qualified for National Championships and many international meets), and I have been coaching nearly every level of swimming (from people afraid to put their face in the water to competitive swimmers who have qualified for championship competitions) for the past 5 years. I feel I am obligated to share my knowledge of the sport free of cost, due to the fact that I know how practical the knowledge I now have would have been to me when I was first learning to swim/ when I was an age group competitive swimmer. As an athlete and a coach, I believe it is my duty to provide EVERYONE with my experience in the sport of swimming; one of the fastest growing, healthy and lovable sports in the world.
