Looks like the longer we go with the home workouts, the more hashtags we will generate for the day of the week 🙂 USA swimming has jumped into the webcast arena and today’s event is presented by Russell Mark. If you don’t know Russell, check out the article from the Washington Post from July 2019. In the article, Rick Maese describes Russell with the following: “Russell Mark, USA Swimming’s high performance manager, whose unusual background and engineering smarts have helped American coaches and swimmers tap into detailed analytics and treat a simple sport like a complex science.” and “Mark’s job is to apply data and video to help the nation’s top swimmers shave tiny slivers of time in the water. Virtually every sport has undergone an analytics revolution of sorts in recent years, and Mark’s role is to help make USA Swimming faster by being a lot smarter.”
