ROWDY GAINS ENDORSES 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 while not slowing them down.
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 can be a contact sport when collisions occur with other swimmers or the pool wall. Concussions and head injuries are just as serious as many other sports. In the long run, “we need to protect swimmers. It’s just that simple” said Gains.
WHO ELSE ENDORSES HAMMER HEAD SWIM CAPS?
In addition to the ten-time world recorder holder Rowdy Gains endorsed Hammer Head swimming pool caps, they are endorsed by ISCA, 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. Other Olympian endorsements include Josh Davis, Dr. Gary Hall, Sr., Tom Malchow and Greg Dummer. All of these endorsements come amid a sharp rise in awareness of the risks of head injury in swimming and other aquatic sports like water polo, artistic swimming, triathlon and diving. Though other sports have continually improved protections and mandates, aquatic sports falls drastically behind. This is why Hammer Head is changing the narrative. After being tested it is 50% SAFER, up to 10.5% FASTER and 100% more DURABLE that the age-old silicone swim cap.
WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK ABOUT HAMMER HEAD SWIM CAP’S ENDORSEMENTS?
These endorsements are a major step in Hammer Head’s mission to make all aquatic 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 not a combat, but 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.
