Good Job Caeleb & Santo - Go Bolles! 

Caeleb Dressell does again with 49"50 breaking his 15-16 National Age Group Record. Caeleb swam like a Pro with all the Olympians.

Congrats to Caeleb and his coach Jason Calanog.

Santo went out to soft and could not swim at the level he can, but first time at a National final and he swam his second best time ever. Very proud of you Santo.

Tomorrow more FAST Swimming and kater tonight I will post the videos of their races.

Congrats to all the Florida swimmers that are making our State proud.

Go Bolles!!!!

FAST 100 Free at World Trials for our Young Sharks!

Amazing morning during the prelims of Day 1 here in Indy for our young Sharks.  Four swimmers swimming 49+ in the 100 free and three of them high schoolers ;-).

Just plain FAST!!!

Our first swim and FASTEST swim was by our youngest Caeleb Dressell that with a blazing 49"63 breaks a very old 15-16 National Age Group Record done by USA Olympian Joe Hudepohl that lastest 23 years.  Caeleb took off from the start and with a very impressive last 15 meters holding his stroke made it all the way to the top eight.  He will be swimming the final tonight and will be competing for a spot in the 4 x 100 Free relay for the Barcelona World Championships.

A heat after we had Santo Condorelli, Ryan Murphy and Charlie Houchin battle all the way to another three sub 50's.  Santo with a 49"71, Ryan with a 49"96 and Charlie with a 49"64 (missing the final by 0.02).  All of the best times and great swims for the first race of these Trials for our swimmers.

Tonight Caeleb and Santo will have another chance to better their times and hopefully secure a spot for the FINA Junior World Championships to celebrate in Dubai this next August.

Here is the video with both races.  Sorry for the quality but it was a team effort recording both races between Coach Jason and myself.  Enjoy and hopefully tonight  willpost some more videos.

GO BOLES!!!

FAST Swimming!!!

Here We Are at 2013 USA Nationals-World Trials

Here we are again at USA Trials a year later.  This time we will spend the next week in the great city of Indianapolis.  Not a very big meet but 469 swimmers will be competing for a spot in Team USA for the 2013 FINA World Championships that will be held in Barcelona, Spain next month. Also this meet will be the first out of three for our Junior swimmers to secure a spot for Team USA for the 2013 FINA Junior World Championships that will be held in Dubai, UAE at the end f August.

I am very excited for our Bolles swimmers since we have a good possibility to qualify swimmers for both World Championships and most important to be able to represent internationally Team USA.

Best of Luck to Ryan Murphy,, Santo Condorelli, Caeleb Dressell and Charlie Houchin (Ix3Sports). You guys are ready and now it is time to let go and SWIM FAST!!!!!!!!

Also Best of Luck to all our Florida swimmers from different clubs and universities that will be competing here in Indy.  Swim Fast!

Great Facility, Great City, Great Swimming about to happen here at the IUPUI in Indianapolis.

Ryan Murphy brings two Medals from Worlds back to Jacksonville.

These past few days we had three of our Bolles Sharks represented three different countries at the 2012 Short Course World Championships here in Istanbul, Turkey.  Anderson Lim (Brunei), Joseph Schooling (Singapore) and Ryan Murphy (USA) have done a very good job these past five days here in Istanbul.

Today has been the most exciting day of all.  Ryan Murphy had the day of his life today here in Istanbul by winning two Medals at the 2012 Short Course World Championships.  Ryan won a Bronze Medal in the 200 Backstroke in an Epic Race with Ryan Lochte and Radoslaw Kawecki from Poland.  The race came down to the last 25 and Ryan came 0.4 short from winning the Gold.  Amazing swim making him the third fastest All-Time Textile swimmer, and he is only 17!

Here are the splits and the video of his race tonight:

1- Radoslaw Kawecki      25.47 / 53.06 (27.59) / 1:21.24 (28.19) / 1:48.48 (27.24)

2- Ryan Lochte                25.16 / 52.73 (27.57) / 1:20.89 (28.16) / 1:48.50 (27.61)

3- Ryan Murphy                25.40 / 53.03 (27.63) / 1:21.09 (28.09) / 1:48.86 (27.77)

Here you have the video of the Medal Ceremony for the 200 Backstroke:

Ryan this morning swam a very comfortable 1:50.60 in the 200 Backstroke to qualify 2nd overall for tonight’s final.  I believe he swam the fourth fastest time of the year this morning.  Very good time for being the first time swimming in his life in short course meters.  His splits: 25.69 / 2.42 (54.11) / 28.75 / 27.74].

Here is the video of the Men’s 200 Back Prelims:

After the 200 Back Ryan was given the opportunity to be part of the 400 Medley Relay for the Prelims swim for USA.  That gave him an opportunity to swim for the first time the 100 Backstroke in short course meters. He swam next the current World Record Holder and did an excellent job with a 50.91 split that I believe is very good too for being the first time.  He would had been top eight in the Finals of the 100 Back here in Istanbul.

Here is the Video:

 CONGRATS RYAN!!!

 Joseph Schooling swam three Singapore National Records, one in the 50 Fly, one in the 100 Fly and another one in the 200 Fly.  His 100 Fly placed him 22nd with a 51.84 and the 50 Fly placed him 17th with a 23.58. In the 50 Fly he missed the SemiFinals by 0.01.  Joseph also helped Singapore in the 400 Medley Relay, 400 and 800 Free Relays.

I will post the videos of the 100 Fly and 50 Fly as soon as I get them from Singapore Swimming.

Joseph did not have a very good swim today and I think mainly because of really hurting his ankle over two weeks ago and not being able to really train properly and push his kicking.  His time was: 1:59.44 [26.18 / 29.87 (56.06) / 31.06 / 32.32]. 

Here is the Video of his race:

Anderson Lim did not have the best meet ever but he swam an almost Personal Best in the 200 Free with a 2:00.74 and he added a couple of seconds in the 400 with a 4:23.37.  In my opinion his strokes were good but he needed to push harder both events from the beginning and really push hard in the middle of his races.  Very young and with a great future ahead of him.

Amazing Finish by our Sharks and by Ryan Murphy of this first part of the 2012-13 season.  I am proud of all the swimmers, coaches and parents for making Bolles the great place it is.

CONGRATS BOLLES!!!
