Golden Corral Dual Meet Features Mecklenburg, Dynamo

CHARLOTTE, NC, December 2. IN another example of the creativity that has always been the mark of the American swimming community, two of the top USA Swimming clubs in the southeastern US got together…and together for a “home and home” set of simultaneous competitions recently.

Mecklenburg Aquatic Club (Charlotte, NC) coach Dave Gibson reports that the Golden Corral Dual Meet pitted the full programs, age group and senior, of Dynamo Swim Club (Atlanta, GA) and Mecklenburg in a meet so big it couldn’t be contained in one state.

Seniors met in Atlanta at the Dynamo pool, while the age group teams met at the same time in Charlotte at the Mecklenburg Aquatic Club Swim Center.

What “double-duals” could be next? Cincinnati Marlins against KC Blazers? Tualatin Hills against King Aquatics? Santa Clara against Brophy East (formerly Phoenix Swim Club)? The only sure thing is a new angle in American swimming “fun” will surface somewhere.
