The Cal/UCLA women's dual meet this past Saturday was no less than amazing. Every heat was full of Olympic hopefuls and many included Olympic veterans.
Cal has a very hands-on approach to their meets, making it a very memorable and available experience for all. They charge no admission fee and allow the children to line up, get autographs, and meet the athletes. This was particularly special after our viewing of Touch the Wall. Our kids were primed to meet Missy Franklin, and they did just that. When Haley approached Missy, she asked if she could have a picture taken with her. Even with a long line ahead of her, Missy's response was, "Of course!".
I have attached the pictures from two swimmers that I drove. If you have one that you would like to add to the collection, or an experience from the day you'd like to add, please send them to me at [email protected] (Be sure to note the back of Camilla Garcia's Aquaducks shirt!)
