The Week in Swimming

Are tourists responsible for the deaths of some of the famous swimming pigs of the Bahamas? (Independent)

Congrats to Karlyn Pipes on her six Masters world records this week! (Swimming World)

Always worth a reminder: Time details the research on swimming's many health benefits.

At a congressional hearing on doping, Michael Phelps claims to have never competed in a completely clean international race (Yahoo) while Yulia Efimova, the Russian swimmer at the center of the Rio doping scandal, will compete this weekend (Sydney Morning Herald).

Hi everybody, we have been getting a lot of enquiries regarding the death of some of the swimming pigs. We want to clarify that this very sad and unfortunate incident did not happen on the island featured on this Instagram. There are 2 locations for the Swimming Pigs. The affected pigs lived on a different island from us, called Big Major Spot, which is 60 miles away from where our pigs live. We’re located on a tiny little island named White Bay Cay, which is near the island of Great Exuma. This Instagram covers the famous Swimming Pigs that have been featured on The Bachelor, HGTV, Access Hollywood, ABC News, etc. and our guests that meet them while out with us on our tours. Apparently, the pigs at Big Major’s Spot may have been given either liquor or spoiled food resulting in seven pigs inadvertently getting poisoned from this. The lesson that should be learned from this heart-breaking incident is that it is not funny to try and get the pigs, or any animal, intoxicated and please do not give them rotten or moldy food. We appreciate all your thoughts and wishes and wanted to let you know that Pickles, Panda, Squealy, and the gang here at White Bay Cay are all fine and healthy! ?: @photographer_ericgarciamarch
