Swimming has never been anything but a recreational activity for me although I enjoy it very much. I’m always in awe of what professional athletes endure to make themselves stronger and faster.
Nathan Adrian, who teamed with swimmers like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte at the 2012 Olympics, seems like a superhuman (as Olympic athlete do). But in this video, he’s just like anyone else in their twenties, give or take the time he spends training. That’s what I like though. He is only human, with the exception of his amazing speed in water.
