Kicking 101

The year before I arrived at the University of Michigan, Coach Bowman had the guys do a 400 kick (LC) for time.  We had some very talented kickers, and when I got to school, it was a thrill to challenge my Michigan and Club Wolverine teammates in kick sets.  Yesterday, I finally got around to doing a 400 kick of my own.  My time was 4:56

This is a great challenge–swimmers of all ages can try this one out!  According to Coach Bowman, the fastest 400s kick he is aware of are, Phelps/Thorpe: 5:08; Erik Vendt: 5:04; Chris DeJong: 4:56
