First 3 days in Indy at the USA World Trials Championships 2009!!

Our own 'Roque n Roll' Santos is at the US World Championship Trials this week in Indianapolis, Indiana and gives us a play by play update from his blog shown below:

"The road to Rome starts in Indy, and the World is watching as the suits wars are in full swing! Oh want fun it is!! Swimmers have to make a choice and they have to believe that they are in the best suit for them! One year ago our little known company was on the pool deck at the USA Olympic Trials and Gil Stoval was the only USA athlete to make the team in a blueseventy nero comp! We've made huge strides forward from that day.

Now in Indy after three days, we have three women in four events making our USA World Championship Swimming Team.

Julia Smit from Stanford has made the team in the 200 IM with a New American Record!! BOOM! She also made the team in the 400IM. Julia did have her suit taken from the locker room.. Suit must be good!

Hayley McGregory missed out USA Team twice last year by placing 3rd in both the 100 & 200 back.. However, in the blueseventy she was the champion in the womens 100 back and will be heading to Rome!

Kasey Carlson...Set the High School standard in the 100 yard breaststroke this year in a blueseventy. Last night she made her first World Championship team in the same event and the same suit!

Wow - what a great week so far! More to come!

P.S. We have found Garrett.."
