The last day of JOs was cloudy and breezy. There were a few sprinkles but it was definitely a day of better weather compared to Saturday. Both prelims and finals sessions were relatively short, the morning session only being lengthened by the 1650 swim at the end of the session. All six sessions ran on time and were fully staffed with officials and volunteers.hannah breast
