I jumped from being either in the top 30 or bottom 400 day by day.

Go big or go home, I suppose.

The Olympics is still a swim meet not a give away as many thought with posts after trials. Would enjoy seeing % of picks for some other winners that surprised. The U.S. team was ready and had a strong racing “attitude” and enjoying it. The U.S. club, Y, HS and NCAA mix of programs give the learning experience of swimming together and in many team activities. The influx of foriegn swimmers is going to be even bigger as they have found there is something different than there countries don’t have. Chuck Welgus wrote well about it in his recent posting over the weekend. Great week of swimming to talk about and would be great to get some inside stories.
