GoPro VIDEO: Birmingham Southern with a swimmers-eye view music video

D-III Birmingham Southern University put together this music video set to Lecrae’s “The Drop” to give an inside look at some of the prevalent images a swimmer or diver takes in during an average practice.

Video creator David Hagood managed to get his hands on some GoPro footage of some very cool camera angles, including some on-board camera views that show exactly what a swimmer sees while swimming various strokes, and even what a diver’s view is like as he somersaults through the air. Check out 1:20 to 1:50 for some awesome angles that only a swimmer or diver will truly recognize.

The Birmingham Southern Panthers are in their second full season as a program, and will compete in the Southern Athletic Association Championships starting February 13.
