Recently we've been sharing some of Kate's favorite swimming books. Click here for the full list. Here's a book that doesn't appear on the list, but deserves to be featured this week in celebration of Pride Month and Black Lives Matter:
Update Editors highlighted read: Odd Man Out, An Autobiography, Jeff Commings (2010).
Jeff Commings writes about his teenage years and most of his 20s, when he was afraid to live openly as a gay man among friends and family. Though he was a member of several USA Swimming national teams and competed in two Olympic Trials, his fear of rejection from those he loved and respected severely affected his life socially and athletically.
Jeff discovered Masters Swimming and initially used the workouts as a way to stay in shape. At the 2003 Masters National Championships, Jeff won five events and set his first national record in the 100 breast. Jeff holds a Masters World Record in the 100-meter Individual Medley. (From Amazon.com)
