This weekend the Grand Slam of Tokyo is held, traditionally the last major event in the Tour. Some of the athletes are back after a period of rest after the Olympic Games. A period of transition between a cycle that ends.
Using the energy from the frustration of a loss and turning it into a positive is exciting stuff. Not many kids get the opportunity that swimmers do to come back after a loss and get right back on the blocks.
Swimmers learn there are no short cuts.If you have a kid that’s especially bright, he or she may not learn how to work in the classroom.If they are a natural athlete, swimming success may come easier to them, but without hard work, they won’t go far.
