Photo’s 2 thru 7 say 2012 Pan Pacific Championships. Are you sure about that? They look like the 2010 Pan Pacific Championships from Irvine.

Yeah it’s 2010. I was in the stands at that Pan Pacs, and I remember that Natalie shocked herself by winning the 100 free too, and in a time she hadn’t swum for quite awhile. Even tho I’m a big fan, even I forget about how many international victories she’s had, and in such diverse events. Great pics, thanks for the memories! I know she wants to have kids but I hope she doesn’t retire for good just yet; it’s always good to have her around…. although I don’t know this for sure, I suspect she was a major factor in the great energy and success of the women’s team in London.
