After reading the thread, 'Your worst swimming experience', I thought I'd offer my 'Best swimming experience' - well, by far the best to date!

I know we've all experienced great happiness after producing a best time in competition, or the joy of winning. And quite right too, it means a lot to us swimmers.

I was swimming in Palma, Mallorca at the European Masters a few years ago. I'd never won a big event before, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I managed, after a close finish, to win the 200m fly.

After climbing out of the pool I heard someone say, "Well done, Graham, that was a great swim." I turned around expecting to see a team mate of mine.

The voice came from a beautiful blonde Swedish swimmer. I'd never met her before and didn't know who she was. She then said, "I've got a bottle of champagne waiting for you at my hotel. We can celebrate your win."

If your best swimming experience can match this it will make interesting reading.

(Yes, I accepted the kind offer of a drink!).

I don't think any of my top 5 top swimming-related experiences will come close to Graham's story.

When I was in medical school in Houston, working out at the Shamrock Hotel's outdoor 50 meter pool--the Air France flight attendants stayed at the hotel during layovers. One day

Now if you could only continue this story with something along the lines of.....After I got out of the hotel pool I saw one of the flight attendants waving me over to where her and her super hot flight attendant friends were sunbathing.....when I came over to see what she wanted, she said that she and her friends thought I looked totally hot swimming laps and would I like to crash thier little slumber party tonight...etc...


See.....It is possible to top Graham's story as long as it has a little fiction sprinkled in here and there.
