Olympic hopefuls training in the Keys
As this is an Olympic year (London, summer 2012) we are beginning to see some world class swimmers coming to Key Largo and Islamorada to train. We are fortunate to have two really great facilities, a 25-meter short course pool at Jacobs Aquatic Center and 50-meter Long Course at Founder's Park. As always, it is inspiring for me to get in the water with these very dedicated athletes, and do what little I can to support their quest for the gold.
Pictured here are Missy Franklin, Kara Lynn Joyce, and George Bovell. I hope we hear lots from all three of them in London! To see more of the Missy Franklin story, in particular, follow http://touchthewall.com/.
