As if winning a swimming gold medal at 17 from Alaska wasn't amazing enough, the Washington Post headline points out: Lydia Jacoby, 17-year-old bluegrass musician, delivers the most stirring upset of the Olympics. Those bluegrass musicians can also do something else, you know.

Really proud of the young lady ..... great swim .... especially since I don't think there is a single 50 meter pool in Alaska.

The first sentence is a little vague. "Swimming 17 from Alaska". Does that mean competitive swimming in Alaska ? If she swam from Alaska, where was she swimming to ?

The prime years for young women in certain types of competition is the mid to late teenage years. In some sports participants don't last longs.

Proud of her in case. Brad.
    More proud if she would have been an old time musician. ;-)
