By now, you may have heard that swimmer Diana Nyad will be a contestant on Season 18 of ABC's Dancing With the Stars. Coincidentally, she also has a memoir slated for a 2015 release. How do you all feel about this? Good for aquatics? Good for her career? Are we seeing too many aquatics athletes on reality TV? Discuss!
Am I missing something? How could this possibly be bad for aquatics?
I can only see it being great. She's fun, she's an athlete, and she's definitely synonymous with swimming.
When people see her on DWTS, they will think Swimming.
I think that the media spot light slowly coming on aquatics is a GREAT thing. It is finally shining the light on something that we all put all of our time, pride, and joy into!
