Our throwback this week is from just two summers ago at the Age Group Championships. The 13-14 800M Free for Girls was a tremendous race seeing Lily Reader and Emily Bucaro go 1-2 swimming away from the competition in the last 400 meters. THis swim highlights some of the things BSC focuses on each day. 1. Strong Back Half Swimming---watch how Lily and Emily are very smooth on the first 400 and then explode into that last 400. 2. Little Things--watch how they swim in the middle of the lane....

Today's throwback is actually two races that demonstrate one of our pillars of tactical training and racing here at BSC! Amanda competed at the US Olympic Team Trials in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012. She is a 7 time Olympic Medalist and an Inductee into the Swimming Hall of Fame. I think her career shows that you are never too young and never too old if you are willing to put in the time and do the work! At the 1996 Atlanta Games Amanda Beard was only 14! She...
