I'm No. 1! Plus, Hudson, OHIO, IM results

Rate this Entry
No. 1, that is, in the 60-64 men's 100 LCM freestyle and the Boys and Girls 10-and-Under National Age Group record books! (Assuming I could pass for 10-and-Under in either gender category, which would involve a doctor's note attesting to a diagnosis of progeria and indeterminate sexual organs. Frankly, this shouldn't be all that difficult to secure.)

Anyhow, to read more about this unbelievable triumph of mediocrity over reason, I invite you to click here http://byjimthornton.com/2012/12/18/random-inventory/ to be whisked instantly to a world of fantastical swimming enchantment...

PS 5:45.80 and 2:39.94 in the 400 SCM and 200 SCM IM's respectively, this despite coming to a virtual standstill in the respective breaststroke legs of each race. A race dissection of the 400 comparing my splits to the current No. 1 Event Rankings placement holder, the legendary walrus-mustachioed Jim Clemmons, is also added to the link aformentioned above.

Click, whisk, enchant!

    I still need an official progeria diagnosis. And one of Leslie's body suits. And then, my friends, the face of 10-and-Under Girls Swimming is going to have to deal with the new little girl in town.

    I present to you: Jemima Thornton (the homely twin on the left)
