Recalling The Steely Grip Of Grant Hackett From His Days Of Dominance Over 30 Laps

CL, I suspect you probably read this over on USA Swimming (http://www.usaswimming.org/ViewNewsArticle.aspx?TabId=1&itemid=6449&mid=14491) but it sure would be one heck of an interview if Hackett, Jensen & Davies could sit down with you for a spell.

Swimming sure unfolds its benefits down the road in mysterious ways.

That would be great, Steve. I placed that link in copy at the appropriate place… thanks.
