  • Analysis of 2019 World Swimming Championships: Less International Parity and Less USA August 12, 2019
      In watching the 2019 World Swimming Championships, I was struck by the apparent wide range of countries that were making finals and even medaling. And, of course, I was extremely surprised at the complete absence of US swimmers in either of the 200 FR finals. Some of this was no doubt due to the… […]

    Recently, Alison Bowen wrote an excellent article for the Chicago Tribune entitled, ” The overachieving generation: As millennials strive for perfection, anxiety and depression increase”. It’s a great read – you can find it here. While it starts off talking about a therapist, who as a boy quit the swim team due to  his own… […]
