February Swimming Challenges & Apple Watch Giveaway
We kicked off February with Cupid’s Challenge, which asked swimmers to log 6 workouts between February 1-13.
On Valentine’s Day, we asked our global community to share why they love to swim, and we received over 1,500 responses! We gave away an Apple Watch and some MySwimPro swag to the lucky winners. Watch the video here.
We finished out the month with our February Distance Challenge, which challenged our advanced swimmers to log 30,000 yards or meters in the app.
New Online Store
We launched an online store, which made MySwimPro swag available to our global community. Grab a t-shirt or hoodie and represent MySwimPro everywhere you go!
Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month, we wrote an article exploring the disparities that have prevented black people from swimming, including systemic racism and economic inequality. In the article, we asked black swimmers to share their take on the sport.
