blueseventy makes bold statement at the US 2009 NCSA Junior National Championships

Down in Florida, we've had our swimming staff on the ground at the NCSA Junior Swimming National Championships following and providing nero swimskins for the super quick. Megan from our Seattle office updates us on who's wearing the nero and how well they're doing...

Day 2 of Junior Nationals 2009 Orlando, FL

Finals of Day 2 showcased sprint events and middle distance stroke races. Nearly half of the men swimming in the 100 meter freestyle finals session were wearing blueseventy swimskins, 5 of which were in the final heat.
Nero swimskins were a very popular choice in both the mens and womens 100 meter breastroke events as well. A quarter of the women and half of the men in the evening heats of the breastroke were competing in blueseventy. The first and second place finishers in the womens 100 breaststroke not only scored big points for their teams but achieved qualifying times for the World Championship Trials to be held in Indianapolis this July - all in blueseventy. The winner of the men's 100 breast wore a Nero swimskin when he swam to victory while also achieving a World Champs Trials cut.
The women's 200m backstroke saw a 1,2,3 finish by blueseventy with 3 World Champs cuts while the 3rd place male finisher in the event also qualified for the meet in a Nero.
The final individual event of the evening was the 200 meter fly where 2 women and 1 man qualified for World Champs in blueseventy.

Overall, 30% of Day 2's top 8 finalists in each event wore blueseventy and 10 of those swimmers will be racing at the World Championship Trials this summer, hoping to earn a spot on the team headed to the World Championships in Rome.
