I'm Back! =]

Okay, so I'm back from UT Dive Camp.
And it was an awesome experience.
I learned a total of 25 new dives with the help of Matt Scoggin and other head coaches from universities around the country. The main dives I learned were
  • Forward 2 1/2 Tuck [1 Meter Springboard]
  • Forward 2 1/2 Pike [3 Meter Springboard]
  • Inward 1 1/2 Tuck [1 Meter Springboard]
  • Back 1 1/2 with 1/2 twist [3 Meter Springboard]
  • Forward Dive Pike [7 1/2 Meter Platform]

And I'm partially broken too. =] I jarred my back on an inward 1 1/2 from the 3 meter, cut my eyelid open in the lockerroom, and have giant bruises on my arms from my 2 1/2s on the 1 meter.

I got to meet Troy Dumais and Aaron Peirsol, along with other swimmers going to the Olympic Trials next week, and an olympic swimmer for Taiwan.

I missed day 2 of the Olympic Trials, but caught all the news and he announcement of the Olympic Trials later that week and today. Next major news I'll post here and I'll start back to normal. =D

You can watch the videos from day two on nbcolympics.com... you have to install their player but otherwise, it's good.

Hey Justin,
Wow, surrounded by hot guys in Speedoes ... lucky you. I wouldn't have been able to concentrate on diving! Too bad my idol, David Pichler, wasn't there. I shared the locker room with him several times (at a regular gym). Hottie.

The real reason I'm writing you is to let you know that ABC News has a report on penguins tonight at about 6:50pm.

Good luck!
