Since I caught a bunch of grief for not sharing some of my "other" "swim" "writing" here's an article I wrote yesterday for USA Swimming. My numbers might be off, and perhaps the rest of you can come up with some better/funnier/edgier/sexier numbers (like the sheer number of condoms used at each Olympics), but here are some pretty fun facts I discovered during my morning research (performed while sipping coffee and listening to my 25 lb. cat wail and moan for more food, the fat piece of fat):
.00014%: Percent chance you’ll qualify for the Olympics if you are a USA Swimming swimmer.
9,600: Miles (estimate) that the average competitive swimmer swims between Olympics every four years.
360: Days until the rematch between Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps in the 200IM in London. (Of course they have to qualify first.)
360: Days until I throw up from sheer excitement.
Read the rest of the article here, and so but now finally heretofore and thus, Desantis, stop hassling me!
