Have trials tickets for USA Swimming always been $600-$3200?!

41 Upvotes

I could go to the trials for USAS. I've been to lots of USA Weightlifting events and they are great. When I looked at ticket prices for USAS though I was shocked how expensive they were. Has this always been the case for swimming? Is there another way to enjoy trials with my family aside from trying to find a stream on TV?

Does anyone have any pictures or footage from the 1988 Netherlands Antilles bobsleigh run?

Upvotes

Of course Cool Runnings and all that is cool, but I've always been strangely fascinated by the forgotten Caribbean bobsleigh team, the one that got the least coverage of anybody, even less than Mexico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

I have been looking for photos of their bobsleigh, their run, their uniforms and helmets for years. Never have I been able to find any photo or footage of them, bar one very low quality image of the two participants (Albertus Carpentier Alting & Bart Dreschel) at the opening ceremony.

I figured I'd ask here. Anybody got any images of them or know anywhere to look for them? I've tried some stock image sites to no avail.

Need help with the context of these 2010 lapel pins, which my cousin owned previously. I don't see online posts with these specific designs in hauls/collections, so I'm not sure if this is given only to a select few? Or are these fake?

Britcher, Sweeney giving women's doubles luge a try for US

Britcher, Sweeney giving women's doubles luge a try for US
Summer Britcher and Emily Sweeney have been USA Luge teammates for years. They’ve traveled together, they’ve competed together, they’ve gone to the Olympics together, they’ve stood on World Cup podiums together.
Being on a sled together was not part of the plan.
Until now.
Britcher and Sweeney, the two most experienced women’s singles sliders that USA Luge has on its current roster and two of the most accomplished in the national team’s history, are going to compete in doubles together at some World Cup events this season — the first steps toward what could be a run to the 2026 Olympics, when two-woman luge will make its debut on winter sport’s biggest stage.
They’re not giving up on singles. But women’s doubles is a relatively new thing in the luge world, and they see enormous potential. The World Cup season for luge starts in Austria on Dec. 3; the World Cup slate for sliding's other two sports, bobsled and skeleton, opens this weekend in Whistler, Canada.
