Florida Swimming Junior Olympics, Day 3

Posted on July 18, 2010


Day 3 at the Florida Junior Olympics continued to be very fast in the water and extremely hot inside the I-Drive Y venue…Maybe 115 degrees in there! (Not kidding.)  

There were great swims all over the place with more record breaking relays to boot!  Emma Spilman from WFLA starts the final off tonight with a Junior National cut in the 200 Fly (2:18.77) and then in the very next final Rasmus Skjaerpe from TBAY takes the 13-14 boys 200 Fly with a 2:10.63.  Other great wins were 12 year olds Luke Hanner, LRSA (100 Fly),  and Nancy Hu, SYS (100 Fly), 13 year olds Lydia Ware, YRRC (100 back) and Roman Zaremba, SYS (100 Back), 11/12 standouts Matthew Hirschberger and Alexandra Atkins also won the 50 backstroke events.

The relays were all dominated by TBAY, ATAC and SYS…great mega teams!  Here is to a great final day at the Junior Olympics…If you all want to see great racing, you have one day left…see you there.

Spirit Update

ATAC and PYP have clearly moved to the front in my opinion, but today was not as strone as the previous 2.  A very hot deck may have hurt the enthusiasm some….We’ll see tomorrow.
