I hope to find a Masters group that swims early mornings at the Columbia Pool or Dishman. Anyone have the lowdown? Or, is there a morning Masters group at Parkrose?

Thanks

My sister is an Olympic athlete (having swum in Athens). She's training for the upcoming trials with the goal of attending the 2008 Games.

She's currently looking for somewhere to train for a few months. I told her I'd look into Portland as I live here and would love to have her stay with me for a bit.

Can anyone tell me:

(1) Are there professional facilities around? By that I mean, good blocks, good pool, etc.;

(2) Is there an Olympic-size pool somewhere close to downtown (she'll have my car so she can get outside downtown, too);

(3) Are there Masters Competitions and/or people who would be willing/able to race her every so often so she keeps race-fit?

Thanks! If you can answer any/all of these, please email me at sjet9806@gmail.com

Thanks,
Steph
