Dunwoody Swimmers at Swim Championships at Georgia Tech

The local swim season in Dunwoody is rec league type stuff.  Lots of fun, kids seeing classmates from different neighborhoods, parents seeing friends from other pool clubs (and once in a while a couple of folks behaving badly, looking silly in front of other parents and kids).  But the real deal is at Georgia tech, at the end of the season.  Time for some Outside Smoke!  (Outside smoke is when a swimmer in lane 1 or 10 (the two slowest entry times in a race) win the race, beating the favorites in lanes 4,5,and 6.)  







The Swim Championships is an event where swimmers from local neighborhoods compete against swimmers from across metro Atlanta.  Many of the participants are year-round swimmers, but many are just naturally talented swimmers putting up great times in June.  You can usually judge the strength (in both quality and quantity) of a swim team based on how many kids travel to GA Tech. But with parents trying to squeeze in vacations before the first week of August not all the best swimmers stick around Atlanta for the event.

You can go HERE and see the final results from this weekend's championships. look for your team and congratulate the participants.
