USA at Aquatics Worlds



Open Water Swimming is often overshadowed by other aquatics competitions, but it's a great little world of its own.  And, USA fans had quite a bit to cheer about last week with both a gold medal and a silver medal at the FINA World Championhips.  Does it portend well for next year's Olympics?
 
... plus Alex Meyer, former Harvard swim team captain and USA Olympian, with his medal performance last week.  He has earned his place in our hearts and in our minds.
