The Beauty of the Goosebump Moment

The Beauty of the Goosebump Moment

By Annie Grevers, Swimming World Staff Writer

Swimming. It starts out as a physical and social outlet. Then when we age up. Around age 11 or 12, we begin to realize the mental component matters– How on Earth do we control these nauseating butterflies? We begin visualizing so pre-race time is not so uncomfortable and/or so terrifying. In the teenage years, swimming becomes personal– a relationship that we love when times are fast and hate when times are flat. We give you so much, swimming, where is my return on investment? 

If you do not find swimming to be emotional, pan across a pool deck at a championship meet. You see caps thrown, tears fall, hugs of celebration and relief, and moments of isolated mourning. But as you grow to know many personalities on the pool deck, you have the high honor of taking part in these friends’ and teammates’ victories. The smell of chlorine, the crowded warm up/warm down lanes, the stubborn barriers which you begin to think you’ll never break, are all mundane parts of the sport when you witness an inspired swim.
