Turning Around - World Junior Swimming Championship - Series 2.2

There were some tight races (or should it be swims?) like this one, were these two were head to head the whole time. Here they are as they were completing a lap and going for another one.

A couple of weeks ago, Monterrey hosted the 2nd FINA World Junior Swimming Championships, which basically is the biggest competition for the age bracket of the swimmers that should be somewhere around 17-18 and under.

There were a few competitors that will even participate in this year's Olympic Games in Beijing, so it was a good show.

During the week I'll continue to post some more photos from the event. You can see the previous posts here.

Hubo algunas competencias muy cerradas como esta, en la que estos 2 participantes estuvieron parejos todo el tiempo. Aquí están completando una vuelta y yendo por otra.

Hace un par de semanas, Monterrey fue sede de los 2os. Campeonatos Mundiales Juveniles de la FINA, que es la mayor competencia para los competidores en la edad, que debe ser de 17 o 18 y menores.

Hubo algunos participantes que incluso van a estar en los Juegos Olímpicos de Beijing, así que había buen nivel.

En los próximos días seguiré publicando fotos del evento. Aquí pueden ver las anteriores.

Wonderful angle.

Nice photography. Hard to get a great picture of swimmers from above unless you are right over them. I think you did a good job though.
