Erica Reetz has revived a dream from her childhood. At the age of 10, Reetz wanted to swim for the United States in the Olympics. It's a common dream of young swimmers, but she also had some common sense. Reetz competed for the Fullerton Aquatics Sports Team, a team she had joined when she was 6. Also swimming for FAST at the time was 4-year-old Janet Evans. Now, Reetz was a good swimmer--good enough to eventually earn a scholarship to Kent State.

A U.S. national team of distance swimmers broke the Long Beach-to-Catalina channel relay record Aug. 11, taking one-hour shifts and completing the channel swim in 7 hours 2 minutes 45 seconds. Jay Wilkerson, Jim McConica, Martha Jahn, Karen Burton, Chad Hundeby and Erica Reetz shattered the previous record of 12 hours 22 minutes. So, which is more of a surprise? That the record was broken by more than five hours or that there is, indeed, a national team of distance swimmers?
