It's a swim blog. A discussion of urine was inevitable.
This week Slate.Com ran an article with the headline "Do Olympic Swimmers ever Pee in the Pool." The answer, of course, is yes. But it is very hard to pee while swimming, so it is done at rest. Apparently some also pee on deck.
The article ends with a mention of the chemical that can be added to pools to turn pee bright colors. I assert that such a chemical is an urban legend, propagated to keep young kids from peeing in the pool. I challenge folks to prove otherwise.
And I will leave you with my thoughts on peeing in wetsuits... There are two types of people... those who pee in their wetsuit and those who lie about it.
