US Olympic Swimming Trials

We went to the trials on Saturday night. What an incredible experience. There is a certian rush you get when you watch live competition - especially competition of this level. We saw a World Record swim and two American Record swims. We had stunning seats (thanks to Joe) in the third row. Not close enough to get wet, but almost. :) The pool was phenomenal! The minute you approached the doors of the Quest Center, you were overcome by the aroma of chlorine. The time lapse of the pool contruction was something you had to watch several times. And to top it all off, Gary Hall Sr. was taking a few laps during general warm up. Totally awesome!
