Many swimmers ask, “What is the secret to success?” I can tell you what it is. When you feel like you can’t swim any faster. Hold your breath any longer, kick any harder, you must keep on going.

The water is your friend. You don’t have to fight with water, just share the same spirit as the water, and it will help you move.
