The Global Swim Series (GSS) is the largest swim series in the world, with a wide selection of incredible open water swimming races that cater to swimmers of all abilities.
One of the strengths of the GSS is the broad selection of swims in amazing locations all over the world. It is dedicated to growing the sport by creating a fun and unique experience, mixed with friendly competition in open water swimming races.
This partnership will grant GSS participants exclusive promotions to train with a MySwimPro Premium Membership.
GSS participants will benefit from an expanded library in MySwimPro of open water swim training plans, drills and educational videos that are personalized to their speed and ability.
MySwimPro and GSS also will collaborate throughout the partnership on innovative initiatives in swimming technology, training education and growth outreach for the sport.
Of the announcement, Global Swim Series CEO Robert Kent said:
“Our goal with the GSS is to promote open water swimming around the world and increase participation in the sport. This involves working directly with the actual races, but we realize that we live in a digital world and the best way to promote our races with swimmers around the world is with the many online tools available.
For us this includes our website and social media, but in order to offer a complete package to our swimmers we needed a swimming app partner too. We wanted a “best in class” partner, and our search ended with MySwimPro. They have a great management team and several impressive awards for their app, including Apple Watch App of the Year in 2016. We are excited to work with Fares, his team and their app to bring open water swimming to an even larger audience around the world.”
