Editorial Reviews

Review

"Swimmers-young and old - in addition to parents, coaches and sports buffs, will enjoy and learn from this well-researched history of Olympic Swimmers. You'll be amazed at some of the performances and stories the authors have found buried in swimming's archives. And you'll find good doses of inspiration and humor as well. First to the Wall should be in every swimming and sports library." -- Jeff Farrell, Double Gold Medalist and Masters Swimmer

"Two words -- Loved it!" -- Mark Henderson, Gold Medalist (Atlanta 1996)

This is a must read for all seriously swimmers or fans of Olympic swimming. I enjoy it a lot. I hope the author or the publisher will have a updated version covering up to London Olympics. Lot of interesting insights and great untold stories.
