Swim Open Stockholm does not only offer a great competition, as usual there are many specials added, like sample of new exciting bars, events from ARENA and many other partners we have. 

And this year we also have the Trainsense on spot again, an equipment for development:

In Swim Open Stockholm 2018 the Trainesense SmartPaddle was introduced for the first time to international swimming community. Now one year later, we will be present again in the warmup area.
A year ago SmartPaddle was “just” an easy to use force measurement device. During the year we have worked in close co-operation with the community of SmartPaddle users around the world. The work has resulted in new insights on sport of swimming and best practices on how to integrate them into daily coaching.
The best practices on using force information are in the background of numerous PB times and also some of the top rankings both in swimming and triathlon. We are happy to discuss the learnings and share some of the best practices.  Check the video behind the link for a short version:
Looking forward in seeing you in Stockholm!
