It seems the DropKixx gig did rather well.
Hopefully, if Kevin’s on the ball, he should be able to get some footage for me.

“I got beat real hard and heavy in the Olympic Games in 1968 by a guy who swam an incredible race one time in his whole life, but he did it right at the right time. I'd like to be that guy now. Maybe that's what I'm going to have to pull out of my hat to make the Olympic team.”
Mark Spitz, born February 10, 1950
