Default World Swimming Championships 2013 in Barcelona

My causin Karlee Bispo is on the US Swim Team at the Championships in Barcelona. She started swimming late in life and was told she had slim to no chance of making the US team. She grew up in Modesto, CA where they didn't have access to any real quality coaching either. However, she was recruited to Texas State and is now on the US Team.

She was just part of the woman's relay and they won a Gold Metal.

Tom: Wow, that was one impressive race! Congrats to Karlee and her team mates! On that last go it looked like the Austrailian gal went out too fast and burnt out on the last two laps.

My 10yo daughter swims competitively. Great sport. Brutal schedule but she loves it.
