The meet was held on the campus of the UCLA Bruins.

Getting ready to race against my friend (and U.S. Paralympic swimmer) Rod (2 lanes over in the swim cap).
Although in different Paralympic classifications, he and I have been competing together at meets for the past 2 years.

Swimming the Breaststroke against a U.S. Paralympic Swimmer from the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.

Last month attended the Angel City Games and swam against a couple of U.S. Paralympic swimmers.
It was an event to promote Paralympic athletic events.
The Founder/Director asked me to attend to demonstrate the positives of competitive swimming for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
This was the first year to include intellectually disabled swimmers, and the goal is to build on this first year.
