Krystal Lara is one of very few Latinas in her class at Stuyvesant High School, and in the pool. She’s backstroking her way toward the Olympics.

A father would save his drowning baby because he loves the child, not because the child loves him. That's who Jesus is.

Next to JESUS CHRIST, may I introduce you to our best friends and committed support group.

Based at the Ft. Lauderdale Aquatic Complex/International Swimming Hall of Fame, Fort Lauderdale Aquatics (FLA) is the local swim club (LSC) that sincerly and passionately reached out to the black community to make this specific area in diversity venture. The black community is merely one underrepresented group under the broad topic that is Diversity in Aquatics. FLA is headed by Duffy Dillon, a fellow FLORIDA GATOR ALUM. Yes, I am a Gator!

Saturday, July 5, 2008, Michael Boucher and Boucher Brothers Management, Inc. entertained the team members, families and guest on South Beach with a sectioned off area of the sand complete with a volleyball court, recliners, umbrellas, food, drinks, footballs, sand buckets, scoops, paddles & balls, hoola hoops servers and a tour of one of the most upscale hotels they work with.

Demonstrating the joy of the Lord Jesus. (L-R) Soyriah Davis (17), Czamille Wright (19) and Kirsten Wright (17).

My wife, friend, sister in Jesus Christ, my flesh, Cyd (pronounced Sid). My wife don't mind cooking. I wanted that, I looked for that, I got that and I married that. It's easy to find a woman. I found a wife. By the way, I know my way around the kitchen too.

The 3 that Jesus used to get me in this aquatics mess, my swimming daughters (L-R) Kirsten, Gia and Czamille. It is written "And a child shall lead them." They're all grown now but still our babies!

Time to get back to teaching, training, checking out the competition and time improvement. Remember, competitive swimming is like walking through your life in Jesus Christ. You work as wisely as you can, as hard as you can and get the results of your labor when you reach the finish and the clock has stopped.

Hey Gainus,

Great seeing you at the DAP Convention and having a chance for introduce you to some of the folks I've been working with from the Black Girls RUN, South Florida, and the Veteran's who are preparing for their first triathlon.

Keep up the great work that you do, and lets stay in touch on the local seen of promoting swimming and using triathlons as a way of getting more of our youth and adult athletes and non-athletes, to venture into the water and learn how to swim, or swim better.
