Photo diary: Iceland day 3 — swimming and diving competitions

June 6, 2012

Thursday was a big day for Andy — two swimming events and one diving competition. The morning began with warming up at the big pool, Laugardalslaug.

Team New York Aquatics was a big presence at IGLA — 74 attendees, including Ethan, Andy, Timmy, and Randall

Alex played on the water polo team

Andy won a silver medal in the 400-meter individual medley

Then we hightailed it over to the other pool, Sundhöllin, for the diving events

I shot some of their practice dives — here’s Judy on the three-meter high dive

And Croft, the diving coach, in mid-flight from the one-meter board, with Allison waiting her turn on top

Croft asked me to be the team’s videographer, so I got a seat up close in order to film everybody’s dives. Couldn’t resist this shot….

Andy was thrilled to win the gold medal on his first diving competition ever.

The diving competition was dominated by New Yorkers — the other three were from California

On our way to dinner, we took a quick tour of the interior of Harpa, the new concert hall

After dinner at Icelandic Fish and Chips, we spied this mural, and Allison, Andy, and Judy manifested their own Wild Things
