Last year, the USMS Swimmer magazine published a review of the book, Swim Speed Secrets by Sheila Taormina. In addition to the book, Sheila published a 16 week workout program with swim workouts and dryland training. In case you do not know who Sheila Taormina is, she is a four time Olympian. In 1996, she lead the 4 x 200m women's relay to a gold medal with a time of 2:00.57. She also competed in the 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympic games in the triathlon finishing sixth in 2000. In her last Olympics in 2008, she competed in the modern pentathlon.
