    Weird Does anyone else think this is a little odd ?

    I was at a childrens swimming tournament with the bairn today, Bertroot's bairn was also there.
    The tournament was split into various events for the type of stroke, and into boys and girls. The next split was the age category, with the oldest being "15 and over"...which contained mostly 15 year olds, with some 16 and a few 17 year olds.....which is what you would expect......however in this category was a 35 year old bloke.

    Am I alone in thinking this is a bit weird ?

    I used to be a Amateur Swimming Association swimming judge and time keeper. If the event class was open and not age restricted then anybody could enter.
    In all the galas I judged at there was never such a big age difference. The only thing I can think of was the older guy was trying for a national qualifying time.
    I used to hate judging some of the races. Take the 400M race. 16 lengths, you notice an infraction to the rules and have to disqualify a swimmer. It could be as simple as the first turn not being done correctly. You can not tell the swimmer until the end of the race.
    I only became a judge due to my daughter being a competitive swimmer, now that she's a lot older she just does open water events.

    I saw the guy today, he looked kind of normal, except for the speedo's.
    Trounced the 15/16 year olds he competed against, was way ahead of them, which was a little unfair I thought.
    They were doing random "spot prizes" which were a bucket and spade with a towel...I so wanted that guys race for him to be a spot prize race and watch him get handed the bucket and spade, lol.
    Bert's bairn did really well today, mine was a mixed bag.

    Was a good day but spent a lot of the day with the guys in the sports hall. Pisses me off that they don't organise the races better to give you some day back. My nipper did 7 or 8 races over the whole two days and the longest one of them was just over three minutes, shite for the seventeen hours there...
