Endorses Hammer Head® Swim Cap
Hammer Head® Swim Caps Called a Protective “Game Changer” for all Swimmers
Unbelievable news to share… Hammer Head®Swim Caps to continue to make a major splash at the highest levels of the national and international swim community. This week we received the official endorsement of swimming legend Rowdy Gaines. If you’re not familiar with Rowdy, he’s been NBC’s lead analyst and “Voice of Swimming” for seven Olympic games over three decades. So he’s pretty much seen it all, and knows a great idea when he sees it.
Rowdy’s one of the all time great swimmers. Three Olympic Gold Medals, 22 time NCAA All American, 10-time NSS Individual Champion and an inductee in the International Swimming Hall of Fame among many many accolades. We’re thrilled to have his vote of confidence. Here’s what Rowdy very kindly says about Hammer Head Swim Caps. Feel free to share this news…
“I am so incredibly excited to partner with Hammer Head and the mission to improve head safety. 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.”
“The Hammer Head® Swim cap is nothing short of a game changer for all swimmers. We will soon all look back incredulously that athletes ever swam without head protection of this kind.”
Rowdy Gaines, Olympic Gold Medalist,
International Swimming Hall of Famer
