Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
World-champion swimmer Sabir Muhammad today announces the eBook availability of his first book, Born to Swim, illustrated by Toni Scott Daniel. It is an autobiographical account of his fear-turned-fascination with water that led him to become a notable swimmer. Muhammad hopes to educate parents about the importance and availability of swimming instruction and inspire kids from all backgrounds to learn to swim. An Atlanta native, Muhammad is a ten-time American record breaker, five-time U.S. Open Champion and 25-time All American and NCAA Champion at Stanford University. Born to Swim is available on iPad. http://www.apple.com/ipad/features/ibooks.html
“I want to share my passion for swimming with parents and kids and describe the benefits every person realizes when they learn to swim,” said Muhammad, who has broken 10 American Records and earned two Short Course World Champion medals during his 27-year professional swimming career. “My goal is to encourage children of all ages to learn to swim and dream big.”
“Having been a competitive swimmer for more than 25 years, I have seen firsthand how swimming can change lives,” said Muhammad, who is also a Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructor. “Swimming provided me a full scholarship to Stanford University and allowed me to travel the world as an elite international athlete, but it all started with learning how to swim.” Muhammad believes that swimming opens the door to opportunities ranging from scholarships to college to the Olympics.
Muhammad is a first-time, self-published author, husband and father of three active children. Also available in hard copy online at http://www.borntoswimbook.com, Muhammad’s story is one that illustrates how kids can overcome their fear of the water to create a whole new world of possibilities and realize their inherent greatness.
