I am so sorry to hear of Brian Counsilman's passing. I so enjoyed and frequently refer to the" New Science of Swimming" that he and his Dad wrote in 1994.

My thoughts are with the families.

The link is www.usaswimming.org and the story is in the news section. While you are there you might want to go to the fans section and check the continued story of the Gary Hall commerical thread that was started here and was locked out on 6-28-05. It started and continued on 6-29-05 and is still going. At this rate is the largest thread over at USA swimming.
