July 2, 2008
Justin competed in the mens 200M fly in olympic trials this morning. His swim was a little disappointing in that he was .3 slower than his best time and he and I both know that he has improved since he qualified back in April . . . He went out about 1 second faster than he ever has in the first 100, and struggled a little on the second 1/2.
Justin has come a long way in the last 2 years from attending his first sectional meet in March of 2007 to 54th place at Olympic trials in July of 2008. Although we were shooting for better, he has come a phenominally long way in the past year and a half and we'll both learn a little from this and use it to keep getting better.
Congratulations to both Rachel and Justin on their first Olympic Trials!
