From the publisher: "Swimmer Shane Gould, 15-year-old world champion in distance and sprint racing, gets up at 4 a.m. She swims more than 3-1/2 miles a day. She has a personal diet that changes with the season. She uses a special two-beat kick most swimmers only use for long-distance races. This stroke-by-stroke instruction book by her mother tells exactly how you can swim Shane's way, gets pointers from her routine and schedule and, if you have the ability and the desire to win, become a better, faster swimmer. Remarkable action-filled photographs of Shane show each angle of each stroke - on dry land (on a diving board) - and in the water (from side and front). Each split second, each gulp of air, each bend of the elbow counts, and Mrs. Gould tells how Shane minimizes water resistance and gets her exceptional speed. Here too is an inside glimpse into the world of swimming clubs and teams, coaches, racing, teaching, and training. How do you work with a coach? How do you balance a strenuous schedule with all the other things you want to do? What do you do on the day of a race - and how does it feel? How can your family help you get ahead in competitive swimming? Swimmers and their families, who participate just as much in swimming-training through their attitudes, gentle discipline and steady encouragement, will find all the answers in this fascinating and immensely useful handbook.".
