MINNEAPOLIS, February 6th, 2019 – Three-time Olympic Gold Medalist, International Swim Hall of Famer and NBC’s long time swim analyst and “Voice of Swimming” for 30 years, Rowdy Gaines, this week endorses the Hammer Head® Swim Cap, a new solution to protect all levels of swimmers against the risk of head injury.
Calling the Hammer Head Swim Cap, a “game changer for all swimmers” in terms of providing protection against head injury in the water, Gaines will also introduce Hammer Head swim caps initially to swimmers and athletes at YMCA locations in the Central Florida region as well as at the Rosen YMCA Aquatic Center where he is based as vice president, aquatics, central Florida.
“I am so incredibly excited to partner with Hammer Head and the mission to improve head safety,” says Rowdy Gaines. “I have spent my whole life working to educate athletes and families on the importance of staying safe in, and around, water. As much as we love seeing our children and young athletes enjoy recreational or competitive swimming, it’s critical that we all understand the risks of head injuries and concussion are just as great as they are on the football or soccer field. Swimming is a contact sport. And we need to protect swimmers. It’s just that simple.”
