Solidarity for Canada’s Stefan Hirniak


Great post here on Cap & Goggles:

I didn’t have an answer. Still don’t. Not really sure why I’ve even writing this. All I know is that I don’t think I’ve ever felt for a fellow swimmer – a guy I’ve never met – more in my life. And Adam and I both know that a fellow Canadian 200 flyer could really use some support right about now. His name is Stefan Hirniak. Last night at the Canadian Olympic Trials, he missed making the Team over the final 25 meters of the race, fading to finish 4th. The exact same thing happened to him four years ago, at the Trials for Beijing. Both times he was a favorite to make it. Both times it came down to that final 50, heading for home.
