The Greatest Masters Swimming Psych Up Video Ever Made

I dare anyone to produce a better “psych up” video than this one, profiling Di, Detroit Interracial swimming program.

I love Rob Butcher, the executive director of US Masters Swimming. Rob’s a dear friend, and I’ve nearly joined a masters swimming program again and  again because of his encouragement…..but DI is much more motivating.

Come on? These guys are superheroes. It’s so obvious. This is what swimming is all about….sprinting, pumping iron, slo mo hero-posing underwater to epic music.

Many thanks to my friend, Fares Ksbati, for producing this video. Love it! Keep them coming…

And good luck to all of the athletes competing at the 2013 US Masters Swimming Spring National Championships!

I clearly haven’t tapped into the Michigan Masters world as far as I thought… I need to meet these guys – that was awesome!


A few minutes of social iron pumping, a couple of starts and 25s, and a lot of posing in and around the pool – you can tell that these guys are sprinters 😉



Naming your swimming team ‘interracial’ seems a bit weird. Kinda implies that other swimming teams in the area aren’t? Sweet video nonetheless!
