USMS Nationals - May 2013


May 14, 2013: Farol Tomson and Mark Walters combined to score 9 points at USMS Nationals in Indianapolis, leading GERM to a tie for 156th place out of 182 teams that scored.

This was Farolís 7th USMS Short Course Nationals. He had best times for the year in the 50 and 100 free, and 50 and 100 fly. Farol has asked that there be no mention of his performance in the 100 IM. Despite having flown out of Indy all the time during grad school, Farol thought he was in the wrong city when he arrived. Turns out they built a new airport three years ago.

Mark swam in his third Masters Nationals meet. He started the meet on the wrong foot with a hideous 400 IM. Observers from human rights organizations claimed his backstroke leg was a form of self-waterboarding, but swimming officials reluctantly concluded that it was legal after getting a long, long, look at it. After a nap, the 200 fly went much better, as did the 50 fly and 100 IM the next day.
