2001 TEXAS STATE FINSWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS
MAY 11-16, 2001 

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!! After postponing the event twice, due to scheduling conflicts and other commitments, we were finally able get the 2001 Texas State Finswimming Championships started and completed (over a 6 day period). We had 27 finswimmers participate, and even though the meet was not as fast as in past years, the meet was still a major success. Many finswimmers saw improvements, and some 1st time finswimmers also participated. The highlight of the meet was the relays, where we had a total of 7 competing and even saw 4 people participate in the 1650 yard Surface. (Also a first for Texas. In the past, the most we could hope for was 1 or 2 finswimmers in that event). It seems most of our finswimmers prefer the shorter events, but since the 4 finswimmers who competed in the 1650 also were  honored with the high point awards for the meet, more finswimmers are realizing that "Maybe the longer events are not so bad." We can only hope  HA HA.  

In conclusion, we had another wonderful meet, and look forward to hearing from our finswimming friends around the world. 

Thanks,
Robert Kelly
Executive Director-Texas Finswimming Association
