Jelly Fish Joins Huntington Master's Swimmers For a Pool Workout

If you've been wondering where all the jellyfish have gone, (remember the Jellyfish Invasion just a few weeks back?), we can tell you where one has gone -- meet our newest Huntington Master's Swim Team and Huntington YMCA Pool swimmer -- "Jelly" Fish.

"Hey, these goggles just make everything blurry!"

"Ahhh, that's much better. Now I can do a kick set -- and with all my legs I really need a good, long kick set."

"Whew, that Kick Set tired me out. I think that I'll go rest on the bottom of the pool."

"Hey Buddy stay out of my lane! Didn't you human swimmers learn anything during those open water swims about getting to close to a jelly fish?"

Based on Jelly Fish's attitude towards his fellow swimmers, I hope that this will be the last we see of him in the Huntington Y Pool.
