Forum: feeling dizzy after the swim

After a reader posted on our Forum earlier today asking for help with dizziness and nausea when leaving the swim in a triathlon, we mobilised the 220 community to give some great advice on what might be causing it, and how to prevent it.

The issue seems to be fairly common, with some people saying it’s caused by cold water touching the ear drum, and others saying it’s due to blood distribution during the swim.

If you have any advice for Tom OGorman then please head over to the Forum and let him know!
