In the final days of 2012, we want to look back and reflect on what an amazing year this was for the sport of swimming. Multiple Olympic Trials...the London Olympics and Paralympics...the Istanbul SCM World Championships. Go Swim would like to give a standing ovation to all the swimmers, worldwide, who thrilled us in 2012 with displays of jaw-dropping technique and who inspired us with their skill, athleticism, fitness, determination, and sportsmanship.
