    This is embarrassing. Sutton comes across as a total airhead.

    Someone didn’t proofread this video very carefully. She swims 13,0000 meters per day?? Either we have an extra zero on our hands or a superwoman, aqua style. Other than that, “interesting” is a good way to put it!

      No, they do 13k daily. They are prepping for a 10k distance race; they do 2+ workouts daily. It’s not crazy to think they do 6k in the morning and 7k in the afternoon.

      High school and collegiate swimmers (especially those specializing in distance events) will routinely do 8k meters in a 2 hour workout during heavy training.

    …what did I just watch?

    Not gonna lie, I snorted a bit at the line “All the water that will ever be, is right now.”

    My first was also “what am I watching here.” I did like the Benny Benassi song though–Cinema. I thought the video was actually kind of cool, I’m just not sure what the purpose of making it was.

      The purpose of the video was to boost her self-esteem before Olympic Trials. Confidence is not her strong suit and if she is not the talk of the meet/odds-on-favorite to win, things are bound to spiral out of control.

        HI WOW,

        I’m the director of the vid, so hopefully I can set this straight. The purpose of this vid was not to boost anyone’s self esteem before trials. It was to present Chloe and her love for swimming in a positive light, amidst beautiful scenery and coupled with wonderful swimwear. Confidence is her strong suit and not only is she a wonderful person to work with, she is a smart and sincere role model for her community. Thank you.

        Sincerely,
        Don Le

        wow you really don’t know Chloe….haha…a competitor maybe?

          Funny thing is I do… What happened at World Championships in Shanghai last summer? She was dominating the US meets and nobody could touch her. Put her on an international level where there are people as good as she is and look what happened. Now you might say that Coach Bill Rose screwed up her taper or what have you, but the counter argument to that is that Chad La Tourette and Ashley Twichell both swam lights out.

    I don’t know who the huger nerd is here: Chloe Sutton for using the “Final Fantasy” crystal theme over the credits or me for recognizing the “Final Fantasy” crystal theme

    haha! you guys are rough. It is just a film guy wanting to try something artsy…Chloe is amazing, smart, confident and a rare beauty. She really just did it as a favor for this photographer guy. Its fun to rock a photo shoot!

    Chris, I actually chose that Final Fantasy 7 theme, not Chloe. It’s because I’m a huge game nerd as well. ; )

    As evvirt commented, you swim fans are a tough tough crowd, there’s no pleasing you lot is there, eh lol

    I personally thoroughly enjoyed the video, thought it was fun, well done. Chloe looked cool in it (and beautiful), not to mention this will definitely make Bobo’s day no doubt haha

    Question for the director or anyone who may know the answer… What piece of music is playing starting at around 1:21? The moody solo piano ballad – is that also a Final Fantasy theme?

    Although I wouldn’t say I like it, it’s not as hard to watch as the video posted earlier with Park Tae-Hwan. Understandably that’s from a totally different cultural taste but WTF! nonetheless.

    The cinematographer was great, but took itself waaaaay too seriously (especially the voiceovers).

    Water…
    Two hydrogen atoms bonded to an oxygen.

    Water…
    The only natural substance with a higher density in its liquid than solid form.

    Water…
    It makes you wet.

    Wat’er…
    You doing with that camera?

    And yet…I watched it twice. See you next week at Trials Chloe, swim fast, wave to me in the stands (green hat, not a creep at all!)

    This is just very unfortunate and embarrassing. I honestly couldn’t contain my laughter throughout the entire video, especially with the voice in the background talking about water. I honestly hope that if she makes it to the Olympics, no one brings this video to the press because I guarantee you she will absolutely get hammered with negativity. As to Don, I really like your photography; however, this was extremely way too much and makes Chloe seem like a self-centered girl. Hopefully this video does not become popular.

    INTLSwimming, the track that plays at 1:21+ is Phillip Glass’ “Truman Sleeps” from the movie “The Truman Show” with Jim Carrey. One of my favorite flicks and songs:

    Glad you enjoyed the music and clip. Thank you for the support.
