Default Cecil Colwin dead at 85

"Cecil Colwin, coach, SwimNews columnist and one of the most prolific and knowledgeable of authors on the subject of swimming, has died aged 85. He will be buried at The Jewish Memorial Gardens in Ottawa today."

I have a few of Colwin's books, Breakthrough Swimming, Swimming Dynamics and Swimming Into the 21st Century. Along with his theories about hydrodynamics, he included a lot of history about swimming and swimmers. He did his own drawings, too.

It's a wonderful book, he was a great writer. Sorry to hear about this. :(

Hi Donal

I have a couple of Colwin's books too and found his writing very interesting and thought provoking. He had a good innings and left a worthy memorial.
