Charlotte Bonnet’s Great Day In Milan:

The Italian contingent at the Trofeo Citta di Milano shined on their home turf, having several top three finishes. But many non-Italians also put in top notch performances in Milan. Most notable was Charlotte Bonnet, who brought home two gold medals for France.

The 23-year-old owned the women’s 200 freestyle, coming in at under two minutes to snag a first place finish. Bonnet’s winning time was 1:56.61. It was also her fastest time this year, a second less than her performance at February’s Golden Tour Nice. She now holds the seventh fastest time in the world in the women’s 200 free.

Bonnet, however, was not done at Milan. She also competed in the 50 free, taking first with a time of 25.26. That race proved a close affair as Bonnet just beat out two Italians, Erika Ferraioli, who logged a time of 25.64, and Nicoletta Ruberti, who claimed third with a time of 25.77.

Bonnet’s winning time was not her best of the season. She notched a 25.01 finish at the Nice competition.

Bonnet is a two-time Olympian. She competed in the 2012 London games at the age of 17, winning a bronze medal with the 800 free relay team. Bonnet then swam in the 2016 games in Rio, where she had an 8th place finish in the 200 free.


Moseley Road used to be known for its luxurious swimming baths which were unprecedentedly closed down a few years ago.

Swimming lovers are however having something to smile about after the city council of Birmingham granted the Moseley Road Baths Charitable Incorporated Organization a license to run the facility and manage it henceforth.

The decision was highly welcome by members of the council who also promised to go to great lengths to ensure that the facility is well repaired before it is reopened again for use. The restoration process, though anticipated to take some time, would ensure that the facility is adorable enough to draw the attention and interest of swimmers from all across the neighborhood and the world at large. The restoration works are estimated to incur costs amounting to £200,000.

According to an analysis by the BBC on http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-birmingham-43303623, the Mosley Road swimming pools have a rich history, one that deserves extra attention and preservation.

They are the only existing swimming pools enlisted at the Grade II category and which trace their history back to the 1880’s during which public baths were constructed. The few remaining pools have been subject to neglect and have not attracted any interest whatsoever as far as rehabilitation is concerned http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2942386/Haunting-images-Edwardian-swimming-baths-built-1907-lying-abandoned.html. The fact that these facilities are being renovated for use for charitable purposes implies a major revamp of historic sites in Birmingham.

However, as renovations are bound to start, safety would the utmost priority as the pools have been closed down before on grounds of safety concerns.

Down Syndrome Doesn’t Stop Man From Swimming

Andy Minares is a swimmer who also has Down Syndrome. However, he has never let his disability stop him from getting in the water. Andy started swimming when he was nine-months old. It was a challenge at first because he could not hold his head up. However, he eventually got the hang of it.

Andy started participating in swimming competitions when he was 6-years-old. He joined the Special Olympics at the age of 9. He has broken several records. He has also traveled the world and met several presidents. Andy stated that he is a champion, and everyone he meets constantly reminds him of this.

Case Study: Cold-Water Swimming Offers Relief of Chronic Pain

Statistics show that roughly one in 10 Americans suffer from chronic pain. Defined as persistent pain lasting for at least 12 weeks, it’s a serious problem that often interferes with the person’s daily activities and lowers his or her quality of life. According to a new case study, however, swimming in cold water may relieve chronic pain.

As reported by TIME, a case study published in the BMJ highlights the potential pain-relieving benefits of swimming in cold water. In the study, a man suffering from surgery-related chronic pain tried cold-water swimming as a last-ditch resort to ease his pain. After jumping into the 51-degree water, he experienced complete pain relief. The relief wasn’t just temporary either. The man said his pain never came back even after stepping out of the water.

So, how does cold water offer such amazing relief of chronic pain? Medical experts are still trying to answer this question though some believe the pain-relieving effects are attributed to the way in which cold water affects brain activity. When swimming in cold water, it creates a mild shock of the nervous system that may change how the brain perceives pain.

In addition to pain relief, swimming in cold water has also been shown to burn more calories than warm water. A separate study conducted by researchers from the University of Florida (UF) found that swimmers in cold water burned 12 more calories than their counterparts in warm water.

Stephanie Slater Retires From Swimming

Stephanie Slater is a swimming sensation that has won numerous awards. She shocked the world last week when she announced that she will be retiring from swimming. She is only 27-years-old. She stated that her health is the reason that she will be retiring.

Stephanie suffered a severe neck injury last year. She also has postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and ehlers-danlos syndrome. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a condition where the blood pressure drops when one stands up. Ehlers-danlos syndrome is a condition that affects the joints, skin and blood vessel walls. It causes skin problems. It also causes the joints to become too flexible, which makes them easier to break.

Stephanie has had health issues since she was a child. However, they were never properly-diagnosed until last year. Stephanie persevered despite her health issues. She returned to the pool after rehabilitation.

Stephanie has stated that she has been forced to retire from swimming now. If she does not stop swimming, then she can suffer serious nerve damage. She may even end up paralyzed.

Stephanie’s neck is fragile, so she has to be careful. People are surprised that Stephanie has been able to achieve everything that she has. Stephanie stated that the decision to quit swimming was a difficult one, and it took her months to come to that decision. However, she believes that it is the best decision.

Indiana University has officially established itself as a swimming powerhouse. The Hoosiers recently captured the men’s swimming championship for the Big 10. This is the second straight year they have accomplished this feat. The last time that the school did this was 32 years ago.

Now they will begin their quest to capture the title for three years in a row. It will be a daunting task. There is a lot of great talent that is coming into the Big 10. Some of the other schools will be improved by the time the next swimming season starts. However, they will all have their work cut out for them in order to beat the Hoosiers.

Indiana was actually trailing in the event for a period of time. However, Indiana was able to rally and make an impressive comeback in order to take the title. Members of the team had little doubt they would win.
