Counting down to No. 1: The Santa Maria Swim Club's Parker Reynolds qualifies for two events at the United States Olympic Swimming Trials this past summer. That's story No. 10 in the Times' Top Ten sports stories of 2019.
Now, "I've been strictly trying to stay in shape riding my bike," said Reynolds. "I rode six miles one day, five the next, nine the next. I've been riding a lot of miles on my bike, with my dad and my uncle. And (SMSC coach Mike Ashmore) also has workouts for us to do while we're out of the water."
“I think it’s best, not just for me but for everyone ,” who had been training – as best they could, anyway, with all the closures of training facilities in the wake of COVID 19 – Reynolds said this week.
