Yes the Olympics are over, but come on! Almost everyone we love is still going to be around. (Michael Phelps is an obvious exception). Swimming is practically a year round sport. There’s Nationals, Grand Prix’s, World Championships, Pan Pacs, another World Championships all between now and Rio. And All of the Nationals and Grand Prix’s are live streamed for FREE on the internet featuring all the swimmers we love the most. They’re not going to disappear off the face of the planet just because Olys are over.
A lot of you are new, so I’m giving you a pass here. You might not be in on all of this stuff. But I’ve managed to get my fix of all our favorites for the last four years, and so can you! The internet is your friend. USASwimming.org is your friend, as is twitter/instagram/facebook. Like their pages. They’ll keep you in formed. Follow their twitters, they don’t become LESS interesting because they’re back home and not in London.
