Video: Malibu After-Swim Solution vs. Chlorine

Malibu Wellness has some new products specially designed for swimmers. Check out this chlorine test that puts the Malibu After-Swim Solution to work against chlorinated pool water. Notice how just a few grains of the powdered solution is effective at neutralizing the chlorine.

Also, the end of the video shows how the product works. It starts as a powder (fresh-dried vitamin complex), then turns into a gel solution in the palm of your hand. If just a pinch of powder removes the chlorine from a cup full of water, just imagine how effective the entire packet is at removing chemicals from your hair.

The Malibu After-Swim Solution packet featured in this video is available online from Kast-A-Way Swimwear. We also recommend a Malibu MakeOver hair service at your local salon.

Video: Giant Human Hamster Walks In Water Ball

I must resort to internet speak to adequately describe this video: OMG ROFL!!1! This is one of the funniest (appropriate) videos I’ve seen in a long time. A woman, in what appears to be the Netherlands, attempts to walk in a huge aquatic hamster ball while wearing an orange hamster suit.

The woman is zipped into the hamster ball and then it is filled with air by attaching a leaf blower to a one-way valve on the side. There is also a thin safety line attached to the ball – to ensure they can reel her back in – because it’s very difficult to keep your balance while walking on water in a giant hamster ball. Watch the video below:

“Dream Girl” – Platform Diving Music Video By The Baldwin Brothers

This is my new favorite music video featuring diving! My old favorite was “In Too Deep” by Sum 41, but “Dream Girl” by a group called The Baldwin Brothers is taking my top spot because it more accurately depicts competitive diving.

The Sum 41 video is fun, but it’s fraught with pet peeves like scores to the tenth of a point and trick dives in competition. Thanks to Justin for sending this video to me!

G. John Mullen Of SwimScience On SWTV Split Time

Split Time is definitely my favorite show on SwimmingWorld.TV because I love the back-and-forth of the ‘talking heads’ format. It’s less formal than an interview, and allows Garrett’s guests to really collaborate and debate in real-time. Here’s my high school teammate (small world!) G. John Mullen from swimscience.blogspot.com breaking down which WR is most impressive for each event.

Why Didn’t I Hear More About Ed Moses On Big Break Disney Golf?

ed moses golf

If you missed the first episode of Big Break Disney Golf then you probably missed Olympic swimmer Ed Moses’ appearance on celebrity-golf-based reality television. According to Wikipedia, Moses was kicked off in the first week – that would have been around the same time this bio video of Ed was posted by The Golf Channel.

Oh well, so Ed Moses can’t win reality show golf competitions – is that any reason to ridicule him through YouTube comments with terrible grammar:

nationwidestar: This is one of the worse golfers I have seen on big break with such a good field of golfers on this show why put this looser on there. Then he says he is one of the best athletes in the world your a swimmer nothing else that? doesnt make you a great athlete. Stay swimming because your not a golfer i bet your a 10+ handicapper. You will never be a golfer!!!!

Italian Swimming Movie Trailer

Giulia non esce la sera

I found this trailer for the Italian movie Giulia non esce la sera (Julia does not go out at night) on Nuoto.it after I saw that they had linked to my previous post: 7 Things To Do With Your Old Speedsuit

Starring Valeria Golino, the movie is about a swimming instructor Julia who is “on probation and compromised with the world” (Google Translate). She gets involved with a man. “They will meet at the edge of a swimming pool: he wants to learn to swim, she does not want to sink in life.”
