Jack Spitser’s Top Swimming Photos of 2021

2021 was an epic year. Getting to experience and shoot my first Olympic Trials (while I was a spectator in 2016, it doesn’t compare) and Olympic Games as the highlights of the eventful year, I am ending the year with a boatload of gratitude to everybody that helped make this year so special.  I’ve compiled this selection of images that represent my favorite and most memorable shots and moments from this year. I’m looking forward to 2022 and creating more images of phenomenal swimmers and athletes competing in the best sport in existence.
