ConcocoPhillips USA Swimming Nationals
Headed over to the Avery Aquatic Complex at Stanford for the ConcocoPhillips USA Swimming Nationals.
Despite the Fina World Championship taking place just days before in Shanghai, a number of swimmers participated in both meets!
One cool, but challenging element of events at Avery Aquatic Complex is they have two long course pools side by side. This is great because it means the meet goes by faster and they can accomodate more heats in one day. But it's also a challenge hoping back and forth between pools and trying to keep track of who's in what lane, which heat, which event, and not missing or mis-IDing anyone!
It's great to see Cal Swimmers like Dana Vollmer dominate in the pool. Not only for Cal Bear pride, but also cause it's easy for me to ID them =)
