Dateline: Gothenburg Sweden

Amy and Lib took off for Sweden the other day along with a gang of other members of the North End Otters (Masters adult swim team) to compete in the FINA World Masters Championships. Read all about it in an article in the Shoreline Area News (along with a great picture of Amy and Lib from after the Alcatraz swim a few years ago). Their event–800 meter freestyle–was TODAY (July 31, 2010), and the results are already in (at the meet site above)! They came in .19 seconds apart (at 20th and 21st): hurray! The Boomerang is looking forward to more details of the meet and the extended trip on their return!
