Quick Hits 3.9.11


- The Nike Swim Miami will have a new venue and a live web broadcast! (Daily News of O.W.S.)

– Friend-of-the-blog Adam B. qualified for the big dance of American open-water swimming with a 10:05 1000 Free at Virginia Senior Champs. Congrats!

– The Princeton men’s swim team recently passed 100K views on YouTube for their lip-syncing tribute to a teammate stricken with MRSA. This almost makes me nostalgic for my time at DeNunzio. Almost. I will say this, though: C. Rob Orr is a genius and a great man. Additional coverage from the Daily Princetonian.

UPDATE: Princeton captain Colin Hanna and Daniel Hasler (the sick teammate) appeared on today’s Swimming World Morning Swim Show. Great story.

      So are the comments:
      “I dunno who Hasler is, but he is lucky to have friends like this.”
      Yep.

    I’m just looking forward to having an excuse to go down and watch the big BIG dance, the 10k. It’ll essentially be the Oly trials. And I’m nowhere near to qualifying for that 10k.

      Still, though. It’s a nationals cut and you’re a masters swimmer. Not many can say they’ve done that. The 10K will be awesome to see.
