  3. I want to thank Coach Archie and Coach Jonathan and all of the other coaches that came as well as all of the swimmers. We felt very welcomed and comfortable being with all of you at the event. I wish we could have stayed longer and done more and hopefully we may able to do that after the Asian Games 2010. In fact, lets plan on it as it was for us a wonderful event and we would like to do it again with more swimming this time.
