Dutch Olympian Dion Dreesens has joined SwimMAC Carolina Team Elite to train under swimming coach David Marsh, and Dion’s gotten the SwimMAC Elite welcome. Marsh is all about power, specifically your power to weight ratio, and nothing tests that more than climbing the SwimMAC Elite ropes.
SwimSwam visited SwimMAC Elite’s HQ back in 2011, just to be a fly on the wall, and this is what we captured; Olympians Nick Thoman and Cullen Jones cranking out rope climb after rope climb.
Dion Dreesens, only 20, should see big gains after training under Coach Marsh. Here’s where he stands right now, his PBs:
- 23.65 – 50 free
- 49.73 – 100 free
- 1:47.61 – 200 free
- 3:51.83 – 400 free
