Lane 2 - Herald Online posts "Diaper Buys Now Offers Adult Swimming Briefs.  Summertime offers fun times at the pool and beach, with waves lapping at our feet offering relaxing and soothing sounds for one and all.  The idea of swimming in a pool or at the lake or ocean can cause individuals with adult incontinence issues not to join in the fun rather than risking an "accident," however. Theme parks with water active areas include the cost of swim pant/briefs for children into the entry cost, but what is an older youth or adult to do or wear to ensure they will not have an accident?"

Unofficial discussions have been going on since last year and a location adjacent to the Hilton hotel is currently under consideration."

Lane 5 - Look To The Stars posts "Rebecca Adlington Turns Her Attention To Kids’ Sport.  Although only 23 years old, Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington has decided to give up competitive swimming, leaving it to the up and coming younger female swimmers.  Although she plans on staying involved at an elite level without competing, Adlington wants to focus on the sport at what she calls a grassroots level as well."

Swimmer Dara Torres does it all -- and still has time to sleep."

Lane 7- PC Mag posts "TomTom Watches Track Running, Cycling, and Swimming.  GPS maker TomTom today announced a new line of smart sports watches designed for athletes who run, cycle, and swim.  Two versions of the watch will be available later this year: the Runner line, designed only for running, and the Multi-Sport, which includes cycling and swimming features.

Nice bathing suits. Fun bathing suits. There were piles of them in a variety of colors, patterns and styles.  The suit I liked most was $350. Maybe it was $450. Who knows? I was blinded by the price."
