Our top ten stories from 2011


2011 has been a fun year here on Swimmer’s Daily, with increasing visit numbers since the sort-of-relaunch in March. Site focus is as the motto says ‘a fast fix blog about swimming’, that hopefully can provide readers with short bursts of fun and/or interesting swim-related content, as a break for instance between tedious training. Preferably visual. I don’t want to bore you with long rants or heavy statistics, so here are the most popular posts of 2011 …
