I can’t help but be a bit nostalgic when I see how far swimming has come for what are essentially a but of age group swimmers – Wow! 50+ years ago, that would have been me, but NOT even with 10 seconds of what they are doing at Pan Pacs/2022! — a happy change I can live with because it wasn’t handed to them; we all know ‘how much it hurts’ to get to this point in their young swimming careers and they earned it! Bravi!
