HUNTINGTON BEACH, California, May 23. SWIMMING WORLD MAGAZINE will have an "embedded" reporter with the NCSA All-American Team during the trip to Honolulu, Hawaii, June 3-10.
"This is a great addition to this NCSA project," NCSA Project Manager Bob Gillett said. "It should be great fun for the swimmers, and everyone in the swimming world will enjoy reading, hearing and seeing all of the inside action during the week; from the actual swimming meet, to the swimmers' activities around Oahu and the happenings in the ‘All-American Village' at the University of Hawaii. The swimmers families, friends, coaches and teammates back home will be able to follow all the action."
Swimming World Magazine's managing editor Jason Marsteller will accompany the team from the assembly location in Los Angeles throughout the week. The plan is to report the action, using the extensive resources of SwimmingWorldMagazine.com, Swimming World Radio and SwimmingWorld.TV.
