USA Swimming Junior Nationals
Headed back to the Avery Aquatic Center for USA Swimming Junior Nationals.
What's a telltale sign it's Junior Nationals and not the Senior National Team?.... Braces.
It's really exciting to see the up-and-coming swimmers, the next Michael Phelps maybe.
The event is a breeding pool (literally) for America's swimming superstars.
Though some swimmers compete for spots on the senior national team while still in their teens, Dana Vollmer competed at Olympic Trials at the age of 12.
It's crazy that it really starts that young... guess it's too late for me to start my swimming career. Bummer.
