The Water Is My Sky Releases New Clip Featuring Connor Jaeger

April 18, 2016 ­ The Water Is My Sky has returned with a new clip from the upcoming documentary to add to the anticipation building into this summer. With less than three months remaining until the Olympic Trials, the team behind the film offers a quick glimpse into the day ­to ­day life of Connor Jaeger, one of the main subjects of the film.

Pulling from excerpts of a recent trip to Ann Arbor, the clip shows Jaeger preparing for the summer ahead as he begins to face the prospect of swimming the final race of his career. The clip ends with a reflection on how he approached his first Olympic Trials meet in 2012, where he unexpectedly qualified for the Olympic team.

In addition to releasing this exclusive new clip, the team behind The Water Is My Sky have also unveiled an apparel sale. Below are details for how the sale will work:
