Sunday's Swim Report / Things I Might Have Missed

1.  A million years ago as an age group swimming I remember wearing Arena swim Arena_shark01 suits.  When I restarted swimming almost 20 years later it seemed like Arena had vanished from the swimming world.  That was then and this is now as Arena is back in the water in the US.  Seems Arena is taking on the Speedo at the NCAA level - "Auburn athletics and Arena, one of the world’s leading sports swimwear companies, have reached an agreement which will provide the Auburn men’s and women’s swim programs with swimwear and other equipment for the next four years."

2. Gold Medal Mel interviews fellow swim great Glen Mills of GoSwim.  Read the funny and interesting article at the Gold Medal Mel Blog LINK

3.  Swimming World reports that "FINA Bureau Votes to Keep Swimming World Records" LINK

5. Rob of RobAquatics asks "It's Almost the End of January... Have You Signed Up for GTD?" LINK.  It's a fun little challenge for USMS Swimmers to see who can swim the furthest.
