Wild night in Tucson!! Well it was hot and wild in Tucson tonight. The night started off over 105 degrees so even getting up on the blocks was kind of hot on the feet.

Chris Deegan Second at Fina UltraMarathon 32km Race in Lac St. Jean, Quebec!

In only his 2nd ever UltraMarathon Race, Chris Deegan, representing Australia (and UVPCS!) finished second overall this year!  As a Fina race series, this race always attracts some of the Ultra-Distance swimmers in the world, and to come 2nd is quite the achievement!  Chris will come away from the race with 4500 American dollars in prize money (with perhaps a 1000$ bonus if the results show he had the fastest 500m in the race, to be determined), and a lot of pride!  Chris swam with the pack until the eventual winner, Marcel Schouten from the Netherlands, decided to break away from the pack

Jon McKay Swims Great at First World Championships!

Jon McKay swam the 10km Open Water race at the World Championships in Korea today.  With 10 Olympic spots available in this race, the best of the best were there with a mission.  Jon swam a very smart race given his minimal experience, holding back in the field and saving energy for the first half of the race, moving up to 18th in the third quarter as the pace quickened, and held in the top pack until the last mile of the race, finishing 24th place overall in a field of 75!  Finishing in the top third of the field as one of the least experienced swimmers there is a great result, congratulat
