Here’s a look at some of the stories you’ll find in this issue:
A Select Group
Whether it’s a National Championships or a race at the local pool, National Team breaststroker B.J. Johnson prefers to view every competition as “just another meet. Every meet that is, except this summer’s Phillips 66 USA Swimming National Championships, to be held Aug. 6-10 in Irvine, Calif. The reason for his change in perception has a lot to do with the importance of these particular Nationals, which will serve as the USA National Team selection for the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships, 2014 Jr. Pan Pacific Championships, 2015 World Championships, 2015 World University Games and the 2015 Pan American Games. Here are a few storylines, match-ups, events and interesting tidbits to watch for at this summer’s National Championships.
This summer’s Phillips 66 National Championships and Mutual of Omaha Pan Pacific Championships will employ an underwater video review system to ensure the highest level of accuracy in officiating. Splash correspondent Meredith Roberts gives us an insider’s look at how this system works.

Even as his competitive days reduced to single digits, he planned for the impending change about as thoroughly as for a weekday breakfast. Beasley was hardly an exception.
