2014 AAU Diving
On Thursday, July 24, at the same venue where
the 1996 Olympic Games were held on the Georgia Tech Campus,
Opening Ceremonies were held for the 2014 AAU Diving National
As the Governor for GA AAU, I had the pleasure to meet with the
Aquatics National Sport Chair, Lewis Fellinger,
and members of his staff. I was given the opportunity of saying a
few brief words of welcome to the athletes.
This event was the largest AAU Diving National Championship that has
ever been held by the AAU.
This six day event continues through the weekend and ends on July
The great thing about being involved in the AAU is to see the many
different sports and those that participate in them.
There is a unifying thing about all athletes, regardless of the
sport. They may chose different sports, sometimes
by choice or sometimes because that is what they are exposed to, but
they all share the same desire to improve and compete.
