A Fun Monday Blog Post With Garrett Weber-Gale Underwater Bike Photos

garrett weber-gale underwater bike

Check out this fun blog post on Food & Water by Garrett Weber-Gale! Garrett does underwater bike tricks as a fun way to train for respiratory endurance. It looks like a lot of fun if your aquatics director will let you put a bike in the pool. Training your lungs can be tedious and difficult unless you find a fun way to distract yourself.

I’ve heard of teams playing underwater hockey, pretending to be mermaids, or hosting an epic game of sharks and minnows in the diving well – but underwater bikes looks like a lot of fun! Visit Food & Water by Garrett Weber-Gale for the rest of the photos.

A Google Image search shows that underwater biking is nothing new to SCUBA divers. In fact, there is even a world record for underwater biking. Italy

Eamon Sullivan And Garrett Weber-Gale: Dual In The Kitchen

Eamon Sullivan and Garrett Weber-Gale cooking

I agree with the17thman – in a recent blog post, he suggested that Australian Swimming Champion and Celebrity MasterChef semi-finalist Eamon Sullivan should take on USA Olympic Gold Medalist and Athletic Foodie Garrett Weber-Gale in a Dual In The Kitchen.

Sullivan boasts a mastery of savory dishes, while Weber-Gale specializes in a lighter, Mediterranean menu. Both stars can be seen cooking on television: Sullivan obviously on Australian Celebrity MasterChef, while Weber-Gale has filmed 13 one-minute episodes of his own cooking tips show “Athletic Foodie.”

They could combine their cooking event with a dual in the pool. Eamon (47.32) would edge Garrett (47.78) in the 100m Free, but would be out-touched in the 50m (Sullivan 21.65, Weber-Gale 21.47). These times are based on Wikipedia entries, but the bottom line is that it would be a pretty even match-up.

An article by the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel Online titled Looking beyond swimming career, Olympian Weber-Gale has 5-year plan for fame in food talks about Garrett’s training in the kitchen on his road to becoming a foodie icon.

With the passion of an Olympic athlete, Garrett has already been training hard, and taking risks – spending weeks in an Italian kitchen, and already making appearances in episodes of Wisconsin Foodie.

The photos from JSOnline.com show Garrett on the set filming 13 one-minute episodes of “Athletic Foodies” which will begin airing Oct. 13 on WDJT-TV.
