Accomplishment: Eight-year-old Katie McLain has been following Olympic swimming closely over the past week — but her own work in the pool lately for Lodi Swim Club has been golden, too.

McLain took the high point total at last week’s meet in Sonora, winning six events and taking second in two more. McLain was first in the 25-, 50- and 100-yard freestyle; the 25- and 50-yard breaststroke and the 25-yard butterfly. She was runner-up in both the 25- and 50-yard backstroke.

Family: Jeff and Anne McLain, parents; one sister, Sarah, 7.

Favorite sport: Basketball. “I get to run a lot.”

How you got into swimming: “My mom was a really good swimmer when she was growing up at Campolindo High,” said McLain.

Memorable sports moment: Having a game end in a tie during her Upward basketball league.

Worst sports moment: When her swimming goggles fell off during a race. “It was kind of blurry to see.”

Hobbies: Reading and swimming at her pool.

Favorite book: “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” by Lemony Snicket.

Must-see TV: “Good Luck Charlie” and, currently, the 2012 London Olympics.

Favorite olympic event: Women’s water polo, diving and swimming. McLain cheers for Heather Petri, a U.S. water polo player, as well as star swimmers Missy Franklin, Dana Vollmer and Rebecca Soni. McLain’s favorite swimming race to watch was the 400 individual medley.

Favorite food: Home-made taco salad.

Favorite summer vacation spot: Mount Hermon Christian Family Camp, located in the Santa Cruz redwoods.

Favorite subject: Math.

Favorite toy: Bop It.

The Athlete of the Week is selected by the News-Sentinel sports staff. Nominations are gladly accepted. McLain will receive a T-shirt courtesy of Lodi Sporting Goods for being selected.

Day 4-5

What a wonderful trip!!!!

Swimming is one of the best sports. The people who swim and the people who support swimmers are so kind, sincere and hospitable.

Mary swam 3 races – 3 Best Times – 3 Team Records

100 meter Butterfly 1:01.43

200 meter Freestyle 2:03.42

200 meter Butterfly 2:16.52

As we walked the pool deck we saw Michael, Ryan, Missy, Elaine, Natalie, Matt, Charlie and 1,700 other swimmers, coaches and parents. All real nice people. Hard to believe it is over and that we will be getting on a plane to come home this morning/mid day.

Last night as we are leaving we said our Good bye’s to the Tennessee team, coaches and swimmers; Mary is going to enjoy being a Volunteer!!

What a Great Trip; But I can’t wait to get home. Next up is a dual meet or 5, Summer League Championships, Junior Olympics, Far Westerns. 5 Counties League Championships, Tuolumne County Aquatics and in September Alaska

Last night we saw Missy Franklin set an American Record in the 100 backstroke (58.85) 20 minutes after placing in the top 8 and moving on to finals in the 200 freestyle. Michael won the 200 freestyle over Ryan, this event takes the top four as it is part of the 4 x 200 freestyle relay so Ryan, Ricky Berens and Conor Dwyer.  In the men’s 100 backstroke Matt Greavers wins in 52.08, just 1 tenth off the world and American record, Nick Thorman is 2nd 52.86. Women’s 100 breaststroke in Beeja Larson and Rebecca Soni going to London and world record holder Jessica Hardy was third and will not be able to go to the Games, that is th American system.

It is sooo cool that we know our swimmers by first name, Michael, Ryan, Natalie; Thank you for taking swimming into the main stream news media. So now add the names of Missy, Beeja, Nick, Matt, Rebecca, Ricky and Conor to America’s Team.

Mary and I have today, Thursday, and then it is back home. It has been a lot of fun

Quick recap of Monday; Mary goes 67th (seeded 138th) with a 1:01.43, Best Time and Team Record!!!! She was out in a 28.6.

Wednesday Mary swims a 200 meter time trial, going 2:03.42. Mary’s first 100 was a blazing :59.76.

Above in our picture/video library is a u-tube video of Jordan Litz. Jordan is now 24 years old and swam Monday in the 400 Individual Medley. Later this week he will compete in the 200 meter breaststroke. The video was produced by Daniel Bowman. On Saturday evening of the Mel Enze swim meet, June 23rd, Daniel married Elisabeth at his grand parents house here in Lodi.

Brenden Hanson in the mens breast; Allison Schmidt and Chloe Sutton, Missy Franklin in the womens backstroke, Matt Greavers in the mens 100 backstroke, Rebecca Soni and Jessica Hardy in the womens breast.

Finals up and almost time to head to the pool to watch the fireworks;

Mens 200 freestyle, Michael looking for a little redemption? Ryan looking to keep the pressure on Michael and do some psych work? Peter wanting to get his respect? Charlie maybe wants a bit of respect also? It is going to be fast tonight.

Today is the day, around 11:07 am Omaha time Mary swims the 100 meter butterfly. Her best time is a 1:01.86 done on May 13th. She would like to go 28.5 or faster out and come back as hard as she can. We will see how it works out. Featured in this event is Natalie Couglan, Dana Volmer, Christine Magnuson and Kathleen Hershey.

The first event of the day is the men’s 400 IM and this features Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte as the top two swimmers. There is no automatics at the trials so we see if they both are on their game. Tyler Clary is also inn the hunt.

The men also have the 100 breast which should be intense with Brendan Hanson,Mark Gangloff, Mike Alexandrov and Eric Shanteau. Look for Scott Weltz to show his speed though he is looking more to the 200 breaststroke

The other event for men is the 400 free where we will see what Peter Vanderkay, Matt McLean, Charlie Houchin, Michaeal Khuch and Chad La Tourette can do.

The women have the 400 IM also with Elisabeth Beisel, Caitlin Levernz and Katie Hoff. The other swimmer we will be watching for is Maya Dorado.
