Several Olympic or competitive swimmers have admitted to The Independent that they -or they partners- regularly pee in pools.
Carly Geehr, former USA Swimming National Team member, said that she even
had a teammate who would sit on the wall and announce, “I’m peeing!” which was… disgusting. But at least she warned us.
Dave Ford, All-American swimmer, also said that “peeing in the pool is commonplace”.
Even though the adrenaline of an Olympic race might make them forget about all their basic needs, like Martin Collignon, Industry Analyst at Google -and a competitive swimmer for years- stated, it’s apparently pretty common during warm-up/practice sessions.
