Here’s a quick collection of pics from the US Senior Nationals in Irvine California.
Enjoy them as I enjoyed being present and somewhat involved.
After I took this shot, I thought… WOW… Check it out, Michael Phelps is trying to get his body into the Go Swim logo shape. COOL, and THANKS! 🙂
Even on the start of a backstroke race, you’re able to pick out subtle differences in how these athletes start the race.
Even on the blocks, you’re able to pick out subtle differences in how these athletes start the race. 🙂
Even Michael wasn’t completely pleased with his races that week, but how many times do you see a picture of someone winning the US National Championships with nobody else in the picture. Still an amazing athlete.
Come on, the sun, the body position, me holding my breath… Brendan’s meet was incredible and he was cool enough to let me take this pic.
Total class after a close race, watching how Aaron reacts AFTER the race is a great lesson for all our young swimmers.
Personally, my favorite flyer. Ian’s power and quickness are absolutely incredible. One of the Texas triple play of World Record holders.
What visit to Cali would be complete without hangin’ with the Davo? Handing out awards, and constantly surrounded by his friends, around the pool is the place for Dave. Now if only I could get that VIP pass away from him, maybe I could get some water. 🙂
What great alignment as she prepares for her start. Margaret Hoelzer preps for her 200 back.
All work and no play makes swimmers just plain dull. Uh, I mean… Aaron preparing to work on his body line.
Yeah, that’s about it. Nice line.
Good luck at Pan Pacs guys. Congrats to Aaron on his victory last night, and here’s wishing Brendan even FASTER swims over the next couple days. GO IAN TOO!!!!!
