I continue to find the statement at 10:25 perplexing... :-?
Just here troubling deaf heaven with my bootless cries...
At 7:01-ish she says "...moving on to the trials or not." What? I thought she said she was at the 1968 trails?! At the 2:45-ish mark, she mentions swimming at the 1968 trials ("...it came to be the Olympic Trials for Mexico City..."). She also mentions her event, the 100 back. But I cannot find her on this list
I would like to acknowledge the help I received from Conrad Wennerberg's book Wind, Waves, and Sunburn, which is the only thorough, accurate, and loving treatise on marathon swimming available. His factual research has often set me straight, and his anecdotes have entertained me for months.
