Marc and Kathy Dumais go a lot farther than most parents do to support their children's athletics. For three years, they have driven 136 miles a day to bring three of their sons--Justin, 14; Troy, 13; and Brice, 12--from their home in Ventura to their diving practice facility in Pasadena. Most days after school, Kathy would load their 1985 Chevy Suburban--packed with homework, snacks, and two other children, Leanne, 9; and Dwight, 7--and drive an hour and a half to the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center.

The event begins with a three-mile run in the hills near the Rose Bowl, continues with a 10-mile bike ride around the stadium and concludes with a 400-meter swim in one of the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center pools.

Pasadena is clearing the way for construction of one of the nation's largest swimming complexes near the Rose Bowl, voting to more than double its contribution to the project to $1 million. Project officials said that ground will be broken within a few weeks for the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center--a complex of swimming pools and a clubhouse at the southern end of Brookside Park--and that the facility should be open by the summer of 1990. The city's Board of Directors has agreed to provide construction financing by issuing certificates of participation and to pay about 20% of the project's $4.9-million cost.

ABC's new celebrity diving competition show "Splash" lines up the usual suspects for such a reality series -- actors, actresses, pro athletes, a beauty queen and even a Playboy model. And then there's Louie Anderson. The 59-year-old, 400-plus-pound comedian may not be the favorite to win, but his very presence may help determine how big a splash the show, which premieres Tuesday, will eventually make. "I didn't look at this as a show that's going to make fun of me even though some people probably do when they hear about it," Anderson said on a recent morning while practicing at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center in Pasadena.

The crystal clear waters of the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center are calm, but poolside, things are getting rough these days with a lawsuit and allegations of racism that are a reminder of a past that many in Pasadena would just as soon forget. Nestled in Pasadena's Arroyo Seco in the shadow of the Rose Bowl, this sparkling oasis is one of Southern California's premier swimming and diving facilities.
