Ous Mellouli Hints At An Enlarged Olympic Agenda

Ous Mellouli Hints At An Enlarged Olympic Agenda

At the recent OptimisSport Swim Forum as part of the Distance Swim Challenge, there were numerous tidbits of insightful information and interesting hints and allusions.

Olympic gold medalist Ous Mellouli who has been doing two workouts a day since he has 12 years old pushing his body constantly to its aerobic threshold explained how his left lung is larger than his right lung because he breathes only to one side.

Ous also smiled at his fellow swimmers on the panel, alluding that the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim may be part of his Olympic agenda in 2012. Given the flat Olympic course and Ous’ dabbling in open water swimming at the RCP Tiburon Mile, we may see the defending 1500m Olympic champion competing against the world’s best marathon swimmers in the Serpentine next year.
