Pepsi, Inc. and Highland Swim Club. Our thanks are extended to all
of them for their generosity and assistance. Last but not least our

watch these coaches as they observed the swimmers individually and
make recommendations as to specific adaptations to normal swimming
styles that would benefit each swimmer.
