We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing. Therefore, SwimSwam is starting the Swimming From Home Talk Show, where host Coleman Hodges speaks with the swimming community about how they’re coping with our current goggle-less reality.
Matt Biondi has always been a huge proponent of swimmers earning money throughout history. This started when Biondi was a competitor himself, and now as a member of the Athlete’s Alliance, he looks to band swimmers together in order to negotiate for fair pay. Biondi talks about the process of building this alliance, as well as the turning point for him in his 7-medal 1988 Olympic Games and the “Dash for Cash” race that himself and Tom Jager were apart of.
