    Name that USMS swimmer

    OK - quick contest. Everyone open up your latest issue of Swim Magazine (July/August 2002). Turn to page 11, which is an Arena swimwear ad. Can you name the USMS swimmer featured in the ad? (Super extra bonus points if you can name the second USMS swimmer in the ad... she has her back to the camera.)

    Let me guess:

    the male swimmer is Robert Margalis;

    the female swimmer with her back to the camera is Christina Teuscher.

    I am pretty sure I am guessing wrong, but it's not easy to guess right, and I am trying anyway.

    <bzzt> Incorrect.

    Hint: Both swimmers are from the New England LMSC.

    Second hint: Both swimmers, along with myself and another person, were on the winning Mixed 25+ USMS One Hour Swim Relay team for 2002.

    I knew I did wrong, first after I confused USMS and US Swimming.

    With this second hint,

    it's easier, after looking at the 2002 results on the USMS web page:

    that's Jason Eaddy, age 25, who swam 5,680 yards in one hour;

    the woman, is either Jessica Stokes, 25, who swam 5,075, or Jena Aber Karbly, 26, who swam 4,870;
    a blind guess makes me saying that's Jessica Stokes.

    What prize do I get for 'guessing' in this contest?
    Personally I would suggest to get me a classic Corvette, from the contest's organizer.

    You are correct. The female is Jessica Stokes... but you'd only know that if you knew her.

    There are actually two ads in process... one (this one) features Jason. The other ad features Jessica. If this ad is "well received" by the population, they'll go ahead with the other ad, I'm told.

    So if you liked the ad, let Arena know!

    Oh... and your Corvette is "in the mail". "Expect 6-8 weeks for delivery."
