In addition to her wry wit, love of Harry Potter and height of a supermodel - my cousin, HALEY ANDERSON is a torpedo in the water.
I watched her on life feed - with butterflies in my stomach, as she took the #2 place at the USA Swimming Open Water Swimming Championships in Fort Myers this bright sunny morning in Florida .
“Anderson swam a controlled race, remaining patient for the entire race, until she made a strong move to break out of the chase pack and capture second.”
The Olympic qualifying race in Portugal will require either Twichell or Anderson to place in the top 15 in order to punch their ticket to the London Olympics. But each country is only allowed one swimmer to qualify, so the Portugal race will essentially be a swim-off between the the Duke Blue Devil and the USC Trojan.
I have purchased this:
To cheer my baby cousin on!!!
And because all good things come in twos, Haley’s sister/my cousin, Alyssa Anderson - is prepping for Olympic trials in other events. I am bursting with pride.
And not to discriminate:
The youngest member of the Conry Clan is Jordan…also a swimmer who we will be seeing in the near future, I’m sure.
