Some Great New Videos from WTC SwimSmart Initiative

Here’s a quick update from the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) SwimSmart initiative.  They’ve put together a YouTube playlist called “SwimSmart Saturdays,” a 9-part series of short (~1-2 minute) video clips that illustrate their 9-point checklist for race day swim safety:

  1. Prepare Early
  2. Work Your Way Up
  3. Be in the Know
  4. Safety First
  5. Tried and True Gear
  6. Warm Up Right
  7. Assess the Situation
  8. Start Easy, Relax and Breathe
  9. Be Alert and Ask for Help

This is all great advice for triathletes looking to have a safe day at the race.
