Back by popular demand! The 2004 Check-Off Challenge will be hosted by Oregon Masters and the USMS Fitness Committee. The objective of this event is to challenge yourself by making a check list and swimming each of 18 swimming events found in pool competition.

The participating swimmer will get a T-shirt in advance, which will list the 18 swimming events on the back. These events will include: 50 free, 100 free, 200 free, 400 or 500 free, 800 or 1000 free, 1500 or 1650 free, 50 back, 100 back, 200 back, 50 breast, 100 breast, 200 breast, 50 fly, 100 fly, 200 fly, 100 IM, 200 IM, 400 IM.

As you swim the events, simply check them off on the back of the T-shirt using an indelible marker. You can swim them during practice, or during a swim meet -- any time, any place, at your own pace! The 2004 Check-Off Challenge features a fun T-shirt with a special swimming eye exam. This clever little chart challenges swimmers to "take a closer look" at one of the most dreaded events -- the 200 butterfly!

I did the events but I forgot to order the shirt last year. I did them of course in workouts. I did everthing several times except for 1000 yard free and 1650 yard free. 200 fly is no problem since I swam it as a kid and 400 Im is no problem.
