Um.. I like to swim? Haha

Actually, I got to see Michael Phelps when he was in Omaha for the Olympic swim trials!! He has a delicious body! Anyway, I was discussing this with friends and we've come to the conclusion that Michael Phelps looks like a cross between Vin Diesel and McLovin'! Does anyone else see that? Haha. It's completely random. :D

I love swimming and was on the swim team in high school. I was more of an endurance swimmer. My event were the 200 IM, 100 Butterfly, and the 500 freestyle, I was the butterfliest for the 200 IM Relay and I was third in the 200 Freestyle Relay. I still love to swim and when I can fit it in my schedule, I swim laps at the local gym. I think it is one of the best workouts you can do.

I myself am not a swimmer but I LOVE to watch swimming. My boyfriend was a swimmer in high school and I always loved watching him swim (was it the black and red jammer?.... ;) ) and I loved watching the swimming events during the Olympics--way to go Michael Phelps!! My heart would pound when he was swimming! I would love to be a swimmer but I have terrible lung capacity :(

I did springboard diving in college after I gave up gymnastics because of injury. I walked into the coach and said, "I've never been off a board, but I know where I am in the air and I can point my toes."

i'm a swimmer. :) Not all that great, but i'm on a varsity co-ed team... Which is great, although to qualify for sectionals here, the girls have to qualify on guy's times.

Michael Phelps is pretty much one of my heroes. he's absolutely amazing.

i swam in high school. i was the fly girl on our medley team, swam the 200m & 400m backstroke, 100m IM, 200m freestyle and filled in where needed. i tried the 800m backstroke during my first meet, only about three weeks after joining the team and thought I would die.

i miss swimming. i'm in the water every chance that i get.

I used to be a mid distance swimmer.... 200fr, 500fr... But then our coach had a huge turnover in who was swimming what, so i guess this year i get to swim 100fly. i'm kind of excited, i liked it last year.
