U.S. Paralympics Trials: Team Named, Dave Denniston Makes Squad — April 6, 2008

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, April 6. THE U.S. Paralympic Team held its Trials over the weekend at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Overall, 38 swimmers earned berths as six world records fell during the meet.
On the first night of swimming, Susan Beth Scott set the S10 division world record in the women’s 400 free with a time of 4:40.10.
The following night featured a trio of world records. Singapore’s Pin Xiu Yip set the S3 50 back standard with a 1:01.55 during prelims. Yip returned during finals to drop the record even further with a 1:00.80. Finally, Deb Gruen broke the SB6 200 breast record with a 3:36.37. On the final night, Erin Popovich shot down the SM7 200 IM record with a time of 3:00.34, while Rudy Garcia-Tolson clocked a 2:40.59 in the SM7 200 IM to claim his record.
While every member of the U.S. Paralympic squad deserves applause for punching their tickets to Beijing, one has always been near-and-dear to all of our hearts. We extend a personal congratulations to Dave Denniston for making the Olympic team! Way to go Dave…..Bring it!
