August is going to be an exciting month as 27 athletes are nominated to represent Canada in the swimming category for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games which will start on the 5th of August and ends on the 21st.
Swimming is one of those sports that use the body’s entire strength, flexibility and endurance. Yet, unfortunately, swimmers are prone to strains and injuries on their neck, shoulder, back, knees and even ears. Knee pain from swimming, for instance, is very common among athletes. In 1972, 34% of the 35 members of the Canadian Olympic team had knee problems.
