I just received my copy of the Topping Point (short film) on DVD. Knowing that the money goes to support Husky Swimming Foundation certainly helps put us to order the video, I can tell you, this looks to be a very interesting movie. It’s great to see the sport in such light, and the Ontracc producers really taking care in featuring the sport of swimming. Support Husky swimming, and support the sport of swimming by picking up the $5 video.
