  • Swimming has a Serious Parity Problem August 19, 2021
    Over the years, I’ve done a couple of posts regarding International parity in the world of swimming. With the Tokyo Olympics over, I’ve analyzed the competition and compared it to Rio 2016 and a random selection of World Championships between 1973 and 2019.

  • Why We’re Not Starting Up in September August 3, 2020
    As the title says, my team isn’t returning to swimming in September. Or October. In fact, we’re going to monitor the pandemic infection rates for a while to figure out when it will actually be safe, however long that takes. And the key to this decision is that Ontario had declared that kids will be… […]
