With all the great racing at the Olympic Trials, it is easy to forget about one of our own former USMS swimmers that will be competing at the Olympics. Sheila Taormina is another inspiration for us in doing 3 sports in 4 different Olympics. She will be competing in the pentathlon in this Olympics at age 39.

If Amanda and Dara have more than two threads going for them, Sheila deserves it as well! Let's remember to watch her even with all the excitement going on in swimming!

I saw that she was able to pick up fencing, equestrian and shooting pretty fast.
