SwimSpray, new bottle unveiled (courtesy of SwimSpray)2-time Olympian Chloe Sutton just created a video where she teaches open water sighting and breathing techniques for open water swimmers and triathletes.

These sighting techniques include “alligator eyes”, slight into breath, and breathe into sight.

These techniques are designed to optimize body position for faster, easier swimming. (You can tell that Chloe’s body stays aligned by noticing that the SwimSpray logo on her cap remains legible throughout almost the whole video).

Chloe Sutton is BOTH an Olympic open water swimmer AND experienced stroke clinician, making her one of the leading instructors for open water technique.

Legal Note on Workplace Hazards: Although Chloe Sutton was exposed to chlorinated water throughout the production of this video, she was provided with SwimSpray immediately afterwards to minimize the harmful side effects of chlorine.


Below, watch the video product demo comparing SwimSpray’s chlorine killing efficacy versus shampoo or body wash. In the demo, SwimSpray’s inventor uses a standard chlorine indicator to show how shampoo does NOT eliminate chlorine whereas SwimSpray instantly neutralizes chlorine. What’s even more amazing is that SwimSpray uses only all-natural ingredients whereas shampoos and bodywashes typically use lots of hard to pronounce chemicals and sulfates.

SwimSpray is a SwimSwam partner.

Nice video. I was hoping I could find some other videos that show some drills to develop those sighting skills. I could definitely use some drills that show you when you are really doing it wrong.
