This gentleman was bound to make us watch an unlikely sport and surely we're following the swimming contest at Beijing with heavy anticipation. After seeing our boxers bundled out with lack of finesse, the Dunford brothers have not let us down.
Starting Wednesday, the young men have come close yet not good enough.
By close of the 6th day though,Jason qualified for the Finals of the 100m butterfly. This being one of the toughest strokes in swimming and the competition from superior teams from US, Australia, New Zealand and one Serbian (who lowered Dunford's record yesterday during the heats); thus far he deserves a mention on this blog.
The whole country will rally around him tomorrow as we look for a medal outside the usual circles of athletics.
Fly brother, fly !
