What Happens to the Human Heart After Months of Swimming?

What Happens to the Human Heart After Months of Swimming?

Ben Lecomte’s historic 5,500-mile swim from Japan to San Francisco is a feat that can’t be missed. Ben's core mission is to raise awareness for ocean health issues. The Swim investigates key topics such as pollution and plastics as he swims closer to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, discovers potential consequences from climate change, and examines how factors like ocean currents can impact his progress along the way. Seeker explains every aspect of our world through a lens of science, inspiring a new generation of curious minds who want to know how today’s discoveries in science, math, engineering and technology are impacting our lives, and shaping our future. Our stories parse meaning from the noise in a world of rapidly changing information. In this episode, using ultrasound and a prototype waterproof monitor, medics and researchers watch Ben Lecomte's heart closely. Can examining his EKG waves in ocean waves help us prevent fatal heart disease?

The Deepest Pool In The World

The Deepest Pool In The World

Professional French free diver Guillaume Néry explores the world's deepest pool on a single breath! Warning negative buoyancy can be dangerous for novice divers as they lose control and sink faster and faster preventing them from being able to equalize pressure. This can cause the diver to experience lung and ear damage, black out, aneurysm, stroke or heart attack.

Breaststroke Technique (body position, kick, pull, rhythm) - Part 2/2

Breaststroke Technique (body position, kick, pull, rhythm) - Part 2/2

Jozsef Nagy was born and raised in Hungary and may know more about the breaststroke than anyone in the world. Not surprisingly, Jozsef Nagy was a breaststroker himself. He won the Hungarian Jr. National Championship in 1973 and competed for Hungary internationally. After he retired from swimming in 1976, he studied physical education at the University of Budapest and earned a prestigious Master Coach certificate. During this time, he read an article on the pattern of ocean waves by Nobel physicist Richard Feynman. Applying principles of physics to swimming, the idea for “wave action breaststroke” was born. It was originally just a theory, created on paper – but then proven in “practice” by Janos Dzvonyar, who placed 5th in the Moscow Olympic Games of 1980. Until Nagy came along, breaststrokers glided along the surface like alligators. Their bodies rode low in the water, with only their backs and the crowns of their heads visible. In the 1980’s, breaststrokers began to resemble buoys bobbing in the water as the stroke became more vertical. In 1986, Nagy moved to the United States and began coaching Mike Barrowman, the first swimmer to perfect “the wave” by channeling his power into smooth, undulating motions. To help Barrowman grasp the idea, Nagy showed him footage of a cheetah on the run. “A cheetah keeps his head down and lifts his shoulders to run,” Barrowman said, “It really did help me to get a mental picture of what the shoulders needed to do in the stroke.” Between 1988 and 1992, Barrowman dominated 200m breaststroke, winning 15 of 16 major national and international competitions and the world record he set at the Barcelona Olympic Games held for ten years. In addition to Barrowman, Nagy coached swimmers from four different nations to international success including, Roque Santos of the USA, Sergio Lopez of Spain, Gabriella Cespo and Norbert Rozsa of Hungary, and Canada’s Annamay Pierse.
