Congratulations to Mark for being selected to officiate at the 2006 IPC World Swimming Championships to be held in December in Durbin, South Africa! This is an great opportunity for Mark and reflects well on Oregon Swimming. He'll be too modest to mention it, so please slap him on the back... of course... he'll probably respond that these atheletes deserve the best, and he's just proud to be able to associate with them... he'd be right. --Bruce Ludwig
