Hanson having coached numerous world Olympians shares his knowledge on the tremendous benefits of altitude training for swimmers. The campus is at an altitude of 7,700 feet, and sits nestled among the Colorado Rocky Mountains providing for an inspiring locale.
“The Nike Swim Camp at Western State Colorado University provides campers with training and instruction in the highest altitude collegiate pool in the United States.” says, Geoff Hanson.
If theres any indication on the benefits of altitude training for swimmers it’s evident in the Mountaineers 6th place finish at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships, breaking 13 school records in the process.
