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.
Out of all the interviews I’ve conducted so far, Mike Bottom wins the prize for best location. When he called me at 9am, he was already out on his boat with his two labs. Bottom commented on how a forced time for pause can be a good thing, and what he’s been getting out of this time at home.
