Dana Kirk is headed to Athens, winning the 200 Butterfly final Sunday evening in Long Beach with a time of 2:08:86. She will now head to Athens along with her older sister Tara, who earned a trip to Athens Friday evening in the 100 Breaststroke.
Tara will vie for a second Olympic event Monday evening in the 200 Breaststroke. She had the 2nd best time in Sunday's semis with a 2:26:25 mark, 2.93 seconds behind Amanda Beard.
While Dana's work is done for now and Tara competing on Monday evening, another Bremertonian will be swimming in Long Beach. Justin Adrian will swim in the 100 Butterfly prelims and semifinals Monday. Two Bremertonians in Athens is a big deal. But man, three would be even better. Go get em', Justin.
