I don’t believe it! My girls swam since they were six. I coached HS swimming..my one daughter swam for USA since 7th grade, she was allowed to swim for the HS then. We moved, the coaching is not great here and you had to be a teacher in order to coach. She almost went back to swimming in college but has transferred. We have sooooooooo much in common is mindblowing!

Boy, that's for sure. After putting up the picture of the swimmer (which is no relation), I never thought in a million years you'd answer as you have. Therese started competitively swimming at 8 and swam on ISI/high school teams until she graduated. She didn't pursue it in college though (lots and lots of work!), because she wanted to play polo instead. She made it as a starter her freshman year; a great effort! I used to swim a little when I was healthier, then I had to give it up (inner ear probs), but lately, through prayer and good holistic meds, I'm back in the pool ... (This photo IS my daughter (left), btw.) What were your daughters' best events? (Please don't say 100/200 breast or 200/400 IM.) :):)
