The CA/NV Section sent an all-star team to compete against a Japanese all-star team in Japan. CCS had four swimmers on that all-star team: Jorie Caneta and Brock Bonetti from Roadrunner Aquatics, Chris Nolan from Tule Nation Tritons and Justin Wright from the Fresno Dolphin Swim Team. All had a great time, although driving on the left side of the road was weird, and Japanese food is very different from what they were used to and took some time getting used to.
Justin Wright was selected Swimmer of the Meet for the Americans. Justin was very surprised at this award because he thought there were other swimmers who had generally performed better over many events. However, the selection of swimmers for this honor (one for each team) was based on the single best performance in an event based on power points. Justin won the honor for his performance in the 200 Fly, a swim he isn't sure from where it came. The Japanese swimmer who raced him in that same event one the award for the Japanese team.
So welcome home Brock, Jorie, Chris and Justin. And congratulations for representing CCS in the first of this exciting new meet.
