Amanda Beard Live Twitter Q&A

Ask Amanda Beard on Twitter and win Aqua Sphere prizes

USMS | October 17, 2013

U.S. Masters Swimming is partnering with Aqua Sphere to present a Twitter question and answer session with four-time Olympian and USMS member, Amanda Beard. The Twitter Q&A will be live for two hours on Monday, Oct. 21, from 1-3 p.m. EST. During this time, Amanda will answer the questions you've always wanted to ask but never had the chance to. At the end of the two hours, we'll select our favorite questions and the askers will win Aqua Sphere prizes.

It's easy to ask Amanda your question. Just log onto Twitter from 1-3 p.m. EST, use the hashtag #AskAmandaBeard and ask away. Make sure to follow and tag @AquaSphereSwim and @MastersSwimming to qualify to win the prizes.

"Amanda is an inspiration to many swimmers across the world, especially Masters Swimmers," says USMS Marketing Coordinator Kyle Deery. "Many of our nearly 60,000 members have families, work, and swimming in their daily routines, which is a very tough balancing act. Add Olympian, celebrity, and blogger to the mix and you have an extraordinary person. For her to share her secrets to how she manages all of this will be beneficial for many of us."

"I've always enjoyed the Masters Swimming community and get a lot of great questions from them at the practices and events I attend," says Amanda Beard, seven-time medalist. "When the opportunity arose for me do a Twitter Q&A with Aqua Sphere and U.S. Masters Swimming, I knew this was a chance for me to connect with even more USMS swimmers."
