So today I just randomly turned on the TV and the Women's Swimming Free-style relay was on.
I watched it and then I hear the name Lacey Nymeyer; she pulled USA in first, just barely beating China. I went to wake up Phil from his nap and said, "hey didn't you used to work for Aaron Nymeyer?" Yeah-why? Well his daughter just kicked butt in swimming... in China! What a small world. Phil used to build houses for Aaron when he lived in Tucson. Go Lacey and go Team USA.
Lacey Nymeyer qualified for her first Olympics by finishing third in the 100m freestyle at Olympic Trials, which earned her a berth on the 4x100m free relay. But a few days later, Nymeyer was bumped up to second when winner Dara Torres withdrew from the event, giving Nymeyer the chance to swim it in Beijing.
