        Trivia Question

        Winner Gets a $15 i-Tunes Gift Card


        Any registered MD Swimming swimmer is welcome to play!!!


        New Question: 
        An instructor said, “You are going to love this. Drown-proofing is one of my favorites. Sink or swim, sweet peas.”

        I tied my feet together, and my swim partner tied my hands behind my back.

        “When I give the command, the bound men will hop into the deep end of the pool,” Instructor Stoneclam said. “You must bob up and down 20 times, float for five minutes, swim to the shallow end of the pool, turn around without touching the bottom, swim back to the deep end, do a forward and backward somersault underwater, and retrieve a face mask from the bottom of the pool with your teeth.”

        The hardest part for me was swimming the length of the pool and back with my feet tied together and hands tied behind my back. I had to flip around like a dolphin."

        What elite organization (and it's number) would this man have been in training for?

        Swimmers who have answered correctly: Lance Rombro, Mia Mesceda, Tess Becket, Shannon Cucchiaro, Lexi Cucchiaro


        Last Month's Winner: Taylor Thomas, FAST

        Answer: Los Angeles, Atlanta and Sydney
