WHO IS JOSH DAVIS?
Josh Davis is a U.S. Olympic gold medalist and former world record-holder. He represented the United States at two consecutive Summer Olympics and served as Team USA Swimming Team Captain. In his third year as head coach at Oklahoma Christian University, Davis is thriving and continues to grow this winning men’s and women’s swim programs.
Davis practices and competes in his Hammer Head swim cap, branding it as “the safest, fastest, most comfortable and most durable swim cap in the world.” He continued, “no swimmer plans on collisions resulting in head strikes, but it happens all the time. In fact, two of my colligate swimmers had a head-to-head collision this year and took them both out for the entire season,” said Davis.
HOW IS HEAD SAFETY RELATED TO SWIMMING?
Richard Franklin, father to Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin and Chairman of the Hammer Head Swim Caps Advisory Board, continues to emphasize that “full-blown concussions are not an everyday occurrence, but it’s the recurring day to day head strikes with walls, elbows, feet and other swimmers heads above and below the water that can have a cumulative effect on the developing brain.” This is what Hammer Head swim caps combat in the swimming pool.
