a t Above, A.L. Hemphill awaits the start of the 90-me- ter soft sand sprint. At far right, Dave Dillehay relaxes after the 800-meter surf swim : News Continued from page 74 became more commonplace. Dan is a world class beach flags com- petitor, as he placed second in the World Championships in Italy in 2004, but he was tripped and tan- gled up in a competitor's legs and was eliminated right before the semis. The contest is single elim- ination, so Dan now had to look forward to helping the 4x90 meter sprint relay team the next day! February 25 Dave DiUehay competed in the 800-meter surf/swim early this morning and finished in about the top 100. The event consisted of five heats (30 swimmers each) and Dillehay was out after the first heat. Incidentally, Dillehay's training for the event was very limited due to corrective eye sur- gery in December. Because of the surgery, he could not enter the ocean or pool until one month before the event. Typically, one would train six to seven months for such an event. Dave decided to go for it in the hope of gaining international experience and to learn more about surf lifesaving in general from the Aussies, who essentially invented surf lifesaving and the related sport. Dave was also the only athlete from the team to compete in a pool event that was held in Geelong, which is just s/00n / March 9th, 5:30-7pm Light Refreshments Served Free to the Pubtic Make Reservations Now (seating timited) Come team how to property care for your skin and achieve a younger, smoother complexion! CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, March 3 - Monday, March 6, 2006 - 75 north of Lorne. Dave took the shuttle bus up, swim fins in hand, and took on 50 other top swim- mars in the 100-meter manakin (Aussie spelling) tow. To qualify for the event Dave flew to Dana Point, Calif. to a national team tryout where he swam well enough to qualify to compete in Lorne. The USLA does not have this pool competition in their national championships. It is strictly a international event. Dave swam fast enough to be in the top 20, but unfortunately was disqualified because he secured the manikin beyond the five meter zone that was required. The event requires a lot of technique, in that you must swim one length to the manikin (swimming dummy), attach a collar to the dummy and then pull the dummy the length of the pool faster than anybody else. Twenty-five percent of the 45 par- ticipants were disqualified as well for similar technical errors. AJ. Hemphill was second up on Saturday in the open 90-meter soft sand sprint. The open 90 is a straight foot race that is tracked electronically at the end line, just in case there is a photo finish. In the first heat he exploded out of the blocks and finished first. In the second heat, AJ. was elimi- nated because he finished fifth. "I would've saved a little juice for the next round if I would have known the interval for the next heat was only 5 minutes," said Hemphill. In the states the intervals between heats are usually 45-60 Continued on page 76 We're celebrating 60 years of quality eye care Stop by any of our 8 locations to WIN 60 Years of Eye Care Laser Vision Correction Surgery NASCAR NEXTEL CUP tickets and much more .... i i i i HRLPEm EYE'ASSOCIATES FOCUSED ON THE fUTURE Call 18001734-20'10 m m 14 ! ! 31 36 mm 39 m,, 61 CLUES ACROSS 1.
