How to get the Michael Phelps Gold Cover 2016 Olympic Preview Magazine

With so much demand for the 2016 GOLD COVER issue, we printed another run.

You can now get the 2016 Olympic Preview issue here with the Michael Phelps gold cover through August 15th.

Here are 5 Reasons to Love SwimSwam’s 2016 Olympic Preview Issue:

1 – Michael Phelps in nothing but gold

Michael Phelps. In gold. How do you like that gold leaf background and the interesting camera angle of Phelps’ world-famous pre-start arm-flap?

2 – Collector’s Item

I own the 1972 Life Magazine cover of Mark Spitz.  That issue was their preview for the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich where Spitz went on to win 7 for 7 gold medals, the most in history at that time. The magazine – the cover – is iconic. That’s what we’re going for with the Olympic Preview, an issue you will want to keep forever.

3 – It is 196 pages

Pictured above, see our first three issues.  The premiere issue was 132 pages.  The 2016 Swimsuit Issue is 172 pages, and The Olympic Preview is 196 pages!  That’s 500 pages of swimming info, features and entertainment over our first three issues.

4 – The Olympic Encyclopedia

The 2016 Olympic Preview  has everything you need to know to fully understand and enjoy the Olympic Games.  It is an encyclopedia of Olympic insider info every swim-fan needs to dive deeper on the biggest moment in sport.

5 – So Many Profiles

Profiles on Olympians are exact and insightful.  We reach back and looking forward with a keen eye to enhance the drama which makes our sport so great. Katie Ledecky, Nathan Adrian, Ryan LochteCaeleb Dressel, Ryan Murphy, Missy Franklin and many, many more are be covered.

****If you live in the United States and you want the 2016 Olympic Preview before the Olympic Games swimming competition starts August 6th, you must buy by July 12th. If you buy by July 20th, you might receive it in time, but we cannot promise it. If you live outside the of the United States, you will not receive in time for the Olympic Games, but you will appreciate owning this issue for years to come.
