Swimming From Home Talk Show: Club Wolverine on 700 Rubber Ducks

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.

I sat down with Club Wolverine head coach Gunnar Schmidt and 2 of the swimmer his top group to work through how to spend this time away from the pool.

Other activities have also included what we’ve been watching, how we’ve been staying active outside, and… buying 700 rubber ducks.
