Swimmers Are Control Freaks: The Paradox Of Control

KING Webmaster

From the Swimming World website...


What is control? Is it power? Is it dominance? For the majority of history, human kind has fought for control, and that is especially true for swimmers.

While we have lost men, time and sometimes blood, we have stopped at nothing to deem ourselves in control. Ironically, in our blind lust for control, we still somehow also look for situations in which we have no control. For those of age, we may engage in the consumption of alcohol to feel any control we may have slip slowly and purposefully out of our fingers.
