Swimming Icon Terry Laughlin Dies

Terry Laughlin could make anyone fall in love with swimming.

He talked about his sport as if it were art, like poetry or dance. The Total Immersion training method that he developed over his 45-year coaching career didn’t just hone swimmers’ technique; it also encouraged a way of thinking, an approach to life, whose basic principle was to move in harmony with the water, rather than fight it.

    What a huge loss to the swimming world. I went to his program nearly 20 years ago and truly learned how to glide through the water. I teach the tecniques to this day. I am so sorry for his family and send my sincere condolences
