Olympians Having a Blast!

Last night the world witnessed one of the best swimming races ever. As a former US Swimming Coach I was so proud of our kids. Now don’t get me wrong, when I refer to these great young men as kids at 71 years of age I guess I have the right to. But watching them win the 4 X 100 free relay and smashing the world record and then seeing them have as much fun as a 10 and under age grouper winning their first race was incredible. But I also realized that they are kids having a blast and enjoying the fruits of their labor….It is a great example for all of those thousands of young swimmers out there. It was also great to see how our kids were able to handle the French team, they did all the talking and we did all the swimming. Tell me if these photos don’t look like they are having a blast.
