Edmonton targets early July for reopening of some city-run recreation centres Swimming, of all sports, is taking one of the biggest hits during this pandemic pause.

There’s nothing that can mimic being in the water.“It is a very specific sport,” said Head Coach Paul Birmingham. “We can do as much as we can on dry land and we can keep sort of general fitness and adaptations.“But when it comes to specific economy of movement, we need the water and without that, fundamentally, we are at a deep disadvantage.”“I don’t think I’ve ever been out of the pool this long since I was, I don’t know, ever,” said Emma O’Croinin, one of Keyano’s top athletes. “It’s definitely been a little weird being out of the pool this long.”The club is still in talks.
