Written by Coach Greg Davis with over 18 years of experience, Flippers contains in-depth stroke analysis helpful for beginners and experienced swimmers alike. Coach Greg has worked with swimmers of all ages and understands the difficulties people face when trying to master freestyle. By applying his finely tuned analytical sense of the technical details of swimming, Coach Greg is able to simplify the stroke into clear, simple steps.
Filled with brilliant above and below water views, Flippers features Gold Medalist Sheila Taormina, arguably the greatest athlete in history. At just over 5 feet tall, and not having made her first Olympic team until the age of 27, Sheila T. seems an unlikely candidate to have competed at four Olympics in three different sports (swimming, triathlon and modern pentathlon). Her Gold Medal stroke is powerful, efficient and ideal for learning proper freestyle stroke. See Sheila in action, above and below the water in Flippers.Review:
I have found the Flippers book to be a great learning tool. I used it with both our elite swimmers, and also hundreds of campers this summer. It is a gigantic help swimming long; and providing the swimmers great visual clues to what they should be working on at various points in their stroke. I highly recommend it. --Jack Bauerle, University of Georgia Head Coach and 2008 US Womens Olympic Team Head Coach
The Flippers book provides fantastic guidance for adults on a low budget who have found value in swimming as self-directed therapy to help with chronic joint pain. --Dr. Peter Kangos, Austin, TX
Flippers are truly AMAZING! We have been reading and learning from it each day. When I told Anthony (who just turned 6) that Sheila started swimming at age 6, his eyes lit up! We told him he could be an Olympian, too. The facts, info, layout, and pictures are so awesome and compact. We love it! --Marianne Roman, mother of 3 in Vienna, Virginia
