Go Ali!


I tried to ignore it all day, but the phrasing of the title has been killing me. Attributing USRPT to her 50.5 100 back would be like saying “I do USRPT because I go a 50.5 in my 100 back”, not “I went a 50.5 in my 100 back because I did USRPT”, as I believe was intended. Maybe “credits USRPT for” would work better than “attributes USRPT to” IMHO.

It’s small, and I hate to be that guy, but… I am that guy.
