It’s been a while since I last posted to The Blogstroke, so here it is.
I checked Tara Kirk’s blog and saw that she had posted last week. She had some interesting things to say nearly a month after the Beijing Olympics have finished.
Here’s an excerpt of what she had to say:
“What happened to me this summer is so confusing, even to myself. I thought that I would take an opportunity to lay some of it out for clarity’s sake. I feel like this whole thing is being swept under the rug and I just can’t let that happen until we correct it. I can’t let people forget that arbitrary rules were used to violate what they were meant to protect. And I can’t let USA Swimming forget its responsibility to its athletes. There are still a few things that I have to keep back because my case is still pending. But there are other things that I can talk about now.

On another note, Bainbridge Island High School will be honoring one of their own on October 9. Emily Silver will be feted during the school’s homecoming assembly, from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. at the high school. If you don’t know, Silver won a silver medal in Beijing as part of the 400-meter freestyle relay.
No word yet if Bremerton will do the same for native son Nathan Adrian. Adrian won a gold medal as part of the 400 free relay.
