Day 6 Bolles Swimmers at 2013 World Championships in Barcelona ;-)

Day 6 Bolles Swimmers at the 2013 World Championships

This morning I had my four swimmers swim here at the 2013hotel FINA World Championships. We had a pretty good morning with Mario Todorovich (Croacia), Joseph Schooling (Singapore), Gisela Morales (Guatemala) and Charlie Houchin (USA). Two Life Times Best, one Season Best and one just 0"2 of best time. Pretty good I would like to say ;-)

100 Butterfly
Today we had Mario and Joseph swimming this event. Mario took it out pretty well in a 24"46 but at the end he was lifting his body a little too much instead of going forward. His time of 52"96 is a life time best and he was pretty happy. I am very happy because he has swam three events and the three of them have been Life Time Best. Congrats Todi! And THANK YOU for training with us and being such a good professional and most important person. Go Croatia!

In this event we also had our Benjamin Joseph swimming the heat after Mario. I think I made a mistake when talking with him about strategy since I thought the guy next to him was going to get out fast and he didn't. Joseph first 50 was 25"06 and his total time was 52"56, placing 17th and this time out of Semis by 0.04 :-(. I have no doubt that he can swim much faster but his first 50 was and he also said his legs were very tired. That's was an eight day meet does to you. It wears you out. We are in the bus right now back to the pool with the hopes someone scratches ;-)

200 Backstroke
Gisela swam today a very tough 200 Back. Even though she was far from her best time she did an amazing job getting everything she had inside. Her husband and baby Ian were in the stands here in Barcelona watching her swim. It was funny because they were sitting next to my family but they did not know each other. Thanks to the baby that was running around discovering the World they met. Ian started walking less than a week ago when Gisela was here getting ready to swim :-(.

Well Gisela swam a very good first 100 with a 1:04"22 but at the 130 meters she started hurting. Her final time was 2:15"63 and it was a season best!

I am very happy with Gisela's swim because I can see that if we have done this with nine months of training and three tapers when we are consistent for few months the sky is the limit. RIO is waiting for Gisela.

Congrats Gisela and Marco.

800 Free Relay
Charlie surprised everyone but not us. He had the fastest split in the morning for Team USA with a blazzing 1:45"66. This swim gives him the chance to swim in the Final tonight and fight for the gold with the best rest of Team USA.

Tonight will be a great race for Charlie and for me it will be a privilege to watch him fight for Gold in my hometown Barcelona. Also today will be a sad day since it is my last time being Charlie's coach since he is moving out of Jacksonville in September to establish his company IX3Sports with a big investor.

Good luck tonight & THANKS for these past two years.

Well enjoy the videos and I write some more soon.

Enjoy the videos!

Go Bolles!!!
