I caught wind of this funny blog via Thrillist. The idea is pretty basic - capture yourself on camera mid-dive, posing horizontally - but timing is everything! I really like the creative spins that people put on their dives, too. Makes me wanna submit one! What should my theme be??

Post reblogged from Let's Do Something Awesome with 2 notes
So I’ve been checking out losangelesswimmin.com as my fellow blogger LDSA recommended below and there are lots of really amazing places showcased on the site - mostly swimming holes, hot springs and waterfalls. There is a heavy emphasis on photos, which can take awhile to load, and it’s not the most eloquent thing ever written, but it’s clear these guys have a true commitment to ’the swim’. Great camping tips as well. I have much to learn from these guys about natural swimming spots, that is for sure. Definitely a useful resource!
Don’t complain about the heat; do something about it. I’ll be swimmin all week.
And on the topic of Los Angeles water spots, peek at Los Angeles Swimmin for the best of the city and beyond.

I recently stumbled onto this wonderful blog by an Australian woman named Sally. I was looking for information on the 1932 Olympics to complement my most recent post on the Los Angeles Swim Stadium and I found a treasure trove of information here. It looks as though she’s been at it for years. What an impressive collection of data, insights and images! I definitely view this blog as something to aspire to! There haven’t been any postings yet as of this year, but there is plenty to sift through in the meantime. Awesome work, Sally! Please do keep it up. : )
