Road Trip Day 8 Thursday 7th August - Guardians of the Gloucester Video
I was trusted by them to take the official video of what Colin Stephenson had assured me all the previous evening was "a gold medal winning team". I had to admire his confidence though as they were seeded 4th.
As their heat approached, team mate Brian and I were banished to the bleachers to record their valiant struggle. We were quite happily chatting away when Brian realised that Crystal was in the water! I managed to operate the video camera when she was half way down her 50, oops, but I did capture the rest of the heat which included a stunning performance from them all to finish second.
I did drop into the warm up pool for a leisurely 600 metres though, so not a total waste!
Only the 200 breaststroke left for tomorrow and I can't say I'm looking forward to it, even though my potential British record entry time of 2:23 has been changed to a more manageable 3:33.
