USMS LCM National Championships

August 10-13, 2007
The Woodlands, Texas

Commentary by Chris Campbell
Karla Rees and I headed down to The Woodlands, Texas for the USMS Long Course Meters Championships. It was hot and humid, even by the standards of Houston in August. The temperature was sitting right at the 100 degree mark all weekend (Thursday was the coolest day at 96 degrees), with humidity to match. How did I ever survive summers like this when I was growing up without air conditioning? MVM came in 88tth overall and 58th in the Women’s division, with 28 points. (Thanks Karla—she scored the whole lot of them) Karla set 2 records, which should be logged as 30-34 marks, because she turns 35 in November, but according to FINA rules, she’s 35 for the meet.

Way to go, Team MVM!
