Saturday was Cherry Bowl the last meet of the season, it consist of 13 teams competing for both team and individual performances. This is the best of the best meet, and let me tell you these kids are good. My of older kids are going to school on swimming scholarships. The level of competition is intense and the pageantry of the event is second to none with a huge parade of swimmers prior to the event with the teams dressed in different costumes and themes. All teakne with the D2X and the Nikon 300 f4

I always enjoy your swim meet shots. As per your usual overachieving self...these are wonderful! The kid w/the mohawk is a riot! Wonder if his mom knew he did it before or after the fact...

Shots 1 and 2 really show the determination of those kids, but out of all of them, #4 is my favorite. The angle and colors is just great. Thanks for sharing.
