Yesterday was the high school swim meet.
Miss Liss is on the team.
We went to the meet and watched her swim.
Then comes the last event, the 4 x 100 freestyle relay.
The home team is barely ahead.
Swimmer #2 drops behind a bit.
Swimmer #3 is just barely keeping it close.
Swimmer #4 dives in.
With superhuman effort, she puts it into high gear and on the last lap, OVERTAKES THE LEAD.
Mom and Dad are jumping up and down screaming-go go go go go go!
We hold our breath!
IT'S A MICHAEL PHELPS FINISH!
Miss Liss has won it for the home team!
(not a photo from the actual meet-the sacred camera is in the shop-miss liss on the right)
We find out later her goggles fell off were dragging around her mouth! So it was really a Michael Phelps finish!
