Nathan Adrian nominated for three Golden Goggles

Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian has been nominated for three 2012 Golden Goggles awards.

The Golden Goggles are USA Swimming’s equivalent for the Emmy’s.

Adrian was nominated for the male athlete of the year, along with Ryan Lochte, Michael Phelps and Matt Grevers, as well as race of the year for his performance in the 100-yard freestyle and the 400 medley relay. Adrian beat favorite James Magnussen of Australia by .001 seconds.

The awards are Nov. 19 at the Marquis Marriott Hotel in New York. Adrian also won gold in the 400 medley relay and a silver in the 400 free relay.

Sounds like Marvin Williams and Mo Williams are going to have this problem all season.
Here’s what the Jazz experienced during their first practice a few days ago. The first preseason game is Monday.
