Oxygen for the Swimmer provides that extra breath of encouragement to head you back to the lane for one more lap. Whether you are a breaststroker, backstroker, freestyler, or butterflyer, and whether you are 6 or 106, you'll find the stories in this book insightful and inspiring.

"Oxygen for the Swimmer is definitely a breath of encouragement." ~Sheila Taormina, Olympic Gold Medalist in swimming, World Champion in the triathlon, and World Cup Standings leader in the pentathlon.

"Oxygen for the Swimmer is full of life stories that talk about victories, struggles, defeats, relationships, values, lessons learned, and how your faith grows through these experiences. Swimming is a reflection of life in many ways. You learn who you are, you learn what is important, and you learn that you are never really alone. I recommend this book to everyone. You will find it both entertaining and uplifting." ~Kurt Hass, Franklin College Swim and Dive Team Coach, seven-time winner of the Indiana High School Coach of the Year.

"Oxygen for the swimmer reminded me why I swim - to give glory to God! It was a great encouragement." ~Melody White, collegiate swimmer at California Polytechnic State University

From the Publisher:

When Alexandria Mangas started on her book as a high school sophomore, she had no idea how it would come together. She didn't dream that cartoonist Cuyler Black would give her permission to use one of his works in "Oxygen for the Swimmer". She had no idea that Paralympian Jessica Long would have time before Beijing to write and submit a story. And Mangas wouldn't have an inkling that Swimming Gold Medalist and 2008 Bejing Pentathlete would submit a story and endorse her book.

But it did come together and was released by Xulon Press, a week before her high school graduation. Mangas' book, a compilation of encouraging swim stories is a book written for swimmers or swimming wanna-be's that are 8-108. From age-group swimmer to collegiate swimmers, to master swimmers, there is a little encouragment for everyone.

Endorsements came from former Franklin High School swim and dive coach and presently Franklin College Coach Kurt Hass. Standout Center Grove HIgh School Swimmer Melody White, who now swims for Cal Poly-Tech also gave Oxygen for the Swimmer high reviews.

From the Author:

Top Five Reasons Swim Coaches/Parents and Swim Competitors should purchase "Oxygen for the Swimmer -- A Breath of Encouragement":

1) "Oxygen for the Swimmer" is a creative gift for "swimmer of the week." 2) It's a great encouragement for surviving "hell week training." 3) It's a useful end of the season gift for the entire team. 4) By writing a note inside the book, it's a personalized birthday gift for each individual swimmer. 5) It's written by swimmers for swimmers.
