ROWDY GAINS HAS ENDORSED HAMMER HEAD® SWIM CAPS

Three-time Olympic Gold Medalist, International Swim Hall of Famer, NBC’s long-time swim analyst and “Voice of Swimming” for 30 years, Rowdy Gaines endorses the Hammer Head® Swim Cap, a new solution to protect all levels of swimmers against the risk of head injury.

 

WHY DID ROWDY GAINS ENDORSE HAMMER HEAD SWIMMING CAPS?

Swimming Legend Rowdy Gains has always worked “to educate athletes and families on the importance of staying safe in, and around, water.” In line with Hammer Head’s mission, Rowdy understands that swimming is a contact sport in which concussions and head injuries are just as serious as any other physical sport. In the long run, “we need to protect swimmers. It’s just that simple” said Gains.

 

WHO ELSE ENDORSES HAMMER HEAD SWIM CAPS?

Weeks before the ten-time world recorder holder Rowdy Gains endorsed Hammer Head swimming pool caps, they were endorsed by ASCA, the International Swimming Coaches Association. ISCA the world’s leading professional organization for swimming coaches, clearly makes this a significant endorsement in the swimming world. Both of these endorsements come amid a sharp rise in awareness of the risks of head injury in swimming and other sports including football, hockey, lacrosse, and soccer. Though other sports have protections, swimming is the one with the least protection. This is what Hammer Head is changing the narrative of. 

 

WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK ABOUT HAMMER HEAD SWIM CAP’S ENDORSEMENTS?

These endorsements are a major step in Hammer Head’s mission to make swimmers, athletes, and coaches more aware of the risks of head injury and the water. “Over three decades and seven Olympic games, Rowdy has seen everything in the sport of swimming: new ideas, products, coaching and competition changes and now the concern for the head safety of all swimmers,” said Theresa Finn, co-founder of Hammer Head Swim Caps. “His endorsement is a real vote of confidence in our head safety technology and will help us educate swimmers, parents, and coaches across the country and around the world much faster and far more effectively.”

 

WHAT DOES HAMMER HEAD HOPE TO GET OUT OF ROWDY'S ENDORSEMENT?

Hammer Head swimming caps is excited to be associated with a big name in the swimming world like Rowdy. More specifically, “we’re going to work with Rowdy to find ways to tap into his phenomenal and unmatched network of swim community contacts and get a cap into as many hands as possible,” said David Burns, co-founder of Hammer Head Swim Caps. “Swimming is definitely a contact sport but there is now a solution. We are thrilled to have Rowdy on board to help spread that message.” Through Rowdy’s insight and expertise, Hammer Head strives to spread its message about water safety and promote its new pool technology. 

 

WHAT MAKES HAMMER HEAD SWIM CAPS SO SPECIAL UNDERWATER?

In order to prevent head injuries in the swimming pool, the Hammer Head Swim Cap is the first major innovation in swim cap design in more than a century. The cap incorporates patent-pending HIT Honeycomb Impact Technology® designed to help absorb the shock of impact with pool walls and other aquatic athletes. This is the best swim cap technology without a doubt. Hammer Head swim caps are also designed to provide a better, more comfortable fit that enhances performance. Caps are designed to cover aquatic athletes’ ears to help reduce the in and out of the water and are more hydrodynamic by eliminating top of cap wrinkles, which in turn reduces drag in the pool.
