Niagara senior Brad Ash found a way to incorporate his swimming into a class project, creating a short documentary about the sport, called Swimming: An Underrated Sport.
You can check out the video above, courtesy of Brad Ash on YouTube. There are some great visuals, and the members of the Niagara University Swim & Dive team get to describe the sport they know and love.
Though SwimSwam readers probably know full well the demands of the sport, Ash’s documentary aims to educate other fans about the unique demands of our aquatic discipline. The 10-minute video delves into such topics as the mental strain of swimming, the team aspect of an individual sport, and the grind of staying motivated during a truly year-round sport.
For anyone hoping to introduce friends or family to the sport, Ash’s documentary is a nice look at the originality of swimming. And as always, it’s interesting to hear swimmers and coaches describe their lifestyles in their own words.
And for those who know all-too-well the unique demands swimming brings, Swimming: An Underrated Sport is a great pep-talk to keep you working and to remind you just how proud we can be of our sport.
