Three-time Olympic medalist and Swedish swim star, Sarah Sjostrom, dropped into the Pro Swim Series for one day in Atlanta. She flew to the United States to do a few clinics and a photo shoot for Arena. The Pro Swim Series stop was a brief moment in a busy schedule to test her speed. She won the 100m fly in 56.6 and picked up silver in the 100m free in 53.4.
Sarah’s been training with Energy Standard in Turkey to escape the dark Swedish wintertime. She’s focused on her dryland training, which she credits with making her freestyle so fast last summer.
Sarah’s confident about her butterfly, solidly controlling the 50-100 world records. She’s gaining confidence in the 50-100 freestyle.
