We just came across this Buzzfeed article about 27 struggles that only a swimmer can understand
Number 9 was "green hair," which results from chlorine reacting with the copper in water to make a green compound that gets stuck in hair.
Number 15 referred to "Chlorine, the Breakfast of Champions."
Number 18 (our favorite) was "Always smelling like Chlorine." Is that Natalie Coughlin in the picture saying that chlorine is her perfume? She should know better.
In any event, we are proud to provide swimmers with the answer to at least three of their top 27 problems. That answer is surprisingly simple - get rid of your chlorine problems by washing the chlorine off of your skin. No kidding.
