About the Author

Sheila Taormina is a 4-time Olympian, gold medalist, triathlon world champion, and swimming coach. She is one of a handful of athletes who have competed in four Olympic games and the only woman in the world to have competed in three distinctly different sports--swimming, triathlon, and modern pentathlon. At the unswimmerlike height of just 5' 2," Taormina refined her exceptional freestyle swim technique to win a gold medal in the 1996 Olympics and the 2004 ITU triathlon world championship. For 15 years, Taormina has coached elite and age-group swimmers and triathletes to develop the strong underwater pull that propelled her to such athletic success in her racing career. Taormina conducts dozens of swim clinics around the world each year.

Reviews

"The concept of 'holding' water and generating propulsion is fundamental to swimming performance, and Sheila's book clearly unlocks the secrets of this through words and vivid underwater photos. It is what every top swimmer trains and searches for each day at practice, and it is what allowed me to win Olympic medals as a teenager and into my 40s." -- Dara Torres, 12-time Olympic medalist"Freestyle gone funky on you? Stuck in a rut where you can't seem to get faster? "Swim Speed Secrets" could be the cure for the freestyle blues. Master swimmers and coaches at every level can learn something from this book" Both the book and [the "Swim Speed Workouts"] training program are outstanding." -- USMS Swimmer magazine"In her book, Sheila Taormina gives a great understanding of the art of high performance swimming.
