OLYMPIC MOMENT:  AQUATIC PING PONG
Put on one paddle.  Place a ping pong ball or perforated plastic golf ball in the center of the paddle (avoid all the ways you can think of to cheat).  While holding the paddle out of the water, and keeping the ball on the paddle, time yourself for a 50.  If the ball falls off the paddle, retrieve the ball, return to your most recent wall, and start over.   You don’t want to start over, so…focus!
