Bremerton’s Dana Kirk swimming at Olympic Trials

June 25th, 2012 by Annette Griffus

Surprise, surprise.

Bremerton native and 2004 Olympian Dana Kirk returned to the pool to compete at the U.S. Olympic Swim Trials in Omaha, Neb., Monday.

Kirk, who is the head coach and founder of South Palo Alto Swimming in Palo Alto, Calif., finished 52nd overall in the 100-meter butterfly in 1 minute, 0.97 seconds. The top 16 move into the semifinals.

Kirk won the 100 and 200 butterfly events at the 2004 trials in Long Beach, Calif., and competed in the Athens Olympics along with her sister Tara Kirk Sell. Dana Kirk has been living in Palo Alto, swimming masters events and coaching. A back injury curtailed her career and she retired from swimming after the 2008 trials when she failed to make the team.
