USA National championships Aug 3-7: we have 3 swimmers(Justin DiFederico, Evan Simoni, and Brandon Meier) attending the National championships next week. All 3 of them will be swimming the 400IM on Tuesday. Justin is also swimming the 200 Fly on Wednesday, and Brandon Meier is entered in the 200 Brast for Saturday (although he may not swim to save for the national junior meet the following week).
The meet is being held in Irvine. If anyone wants to see the best swimming in the country, Irvine is only 1.5 hours away. . .yes Michael Phelps, and many of the 08 Olympians will be there, as well as America's next up-and-coming generation of Olympians for 2012. So if you go, Tuesday would be a great day to go.
There is an admission fee. I do have coupons to get 14&unders into the prelim sessions for free. not sure what the tickets cost. See me at the pool on Wed or Friday afternoon for coupons.
