Sighting is an important skill for the triathlete or open water swimmer. This brief video covers some of the ways you can work on your sighting skills in the pool so that you are better prepared when practicing your sighting in open water, whether in training or at a race! Sighting can very easily be practiced in the pool, and since some athletes don't have the opportunity in getting out to open water swim venues very often, practicing in the pool can be a great substitution for open water practice.
Happy training and racing!
