Olympic Trials psych sheets, TV schedule & “The Body Issue”

Hold onto your hats, or swim caps as the case may be, Nathan Adrian fans … trials are less than a week away and momentum is building.

The hype is likely going to be on overload when ESPN The Magazine’s The Body Issue hits newsstands July 8. Not only will Nathan’s — Bremerton’s favorite swimming son — fate be assured for the Rio Olympics by then, his introduction to the rest of the country (and world) will be peaking. Nathan joins the ranks of fellow Olympic champions Michael Phelps and Natalie Coughlin to be featured in the tastefully-positioned nude issue.

Don’t forget. Nathan isn’t new to ESPN. He joined fellow Olympian Jessica Hardy in a great video entitled “The Opaque” a few years ago.

Nathan is also a Tommy Hilfiger spokesmodel and recently donned a cardigan and black-rimmed eyeglasses for a pre-Olympics photo shoot.

Amidst all the distractions away from the pool, Nathan has still managed to post some of the best times leading up to the swim trials. He is the top seed in the 100 and 50 meter freestyle events, and barring a MAJOR upset, should be earmarked to anchor both relays in Rio.

One way he’s been so consistent is the technology he’s been able to use thanks to his sponsorship from BMW. High-speed motion capture technology and video analysis have helped him shave precious milliseconds off his time. Check out this story that ran in Popular Science magazine.

In case you’ve forgotten, here’s how Nathan won the trials 100 free in 2012 and just missed out on the 50 free.

Here’s the link to the psych sheets for the Olympic trials and a link to the event schedule and TV schedule.

One thought on “Olympic Trials psych sheets, TV schedule & “The Body Issue”

  1. It is a special thing for our community to have and follow such a recognizable and successful athlete who also happens to be a great person who is forever associated and linked with Bremerton.

    What was missed, by many, in the past couple of weeks is the fact that another Adrian who is successful and also a caring and compassionate person was honored for her service to our community.

    On June 2, 2016 at the Bremerton School Board Meeting, this year’s district retirees were recognized and honored.

    Cecilia Adrian was one of those individuals. A Health Technician with the district that she started working for in 1999, Mrs. Adrian took care of, assisted and treated our community’s most precious possession which is our children for 17 years. All while she raised her own son to meet the Olympic Gold potential he had inside of him.

    Congratulations on your retirement, Cecilia. Thank you for all of your contributions to Bremerton from a grateful parent.
