U.S. Nationals Swim Meet

A giant tribute by Omaha to the swimming events they hosted this summer.

Quickly following on the tail of the U.S. Olympic Trials, the U.S. Master Swimming association held our Summer Long Course Nationals in the very pool the olympians swam in. The facility was remarkable. The warm-up pool itself had something like 15 lanes while the competitive pool had 10 lanes of 50 meters. The water was a perfect temperature and, as we say in swimming, the pool was fast. Thousands of people attended this four day meet and I swam in six events.

Did I make a dent in world records? Did I set the world on fire with my awesome swimming skills?

Of course not!

However the calibre of swimming was such that records were broken all day, every day. This was truly a memorable event.
