Legendary Henderson coach Hay dies at 66

Sometimes coaches have an exceptionally positive influence on an athlete's life. I would say that Coach Hay is one of those people. Read the comments at The Daily Local left by his former swimmers (and runners). The swimming community is certainly at a loss. ~Dean O.

Early Sunday morning, Chester County's sports community and academic world suffered a major loss when John Hay died in his sleep. The veteran coach, who had achieved top-level success in coaching three sports -- swimming, cross country and track and field -- died of respiratory failure.

He was 66.

Ironically, his passing came on the same day as the announcement that he was to be inducted to the Chester County Sports Hall of Fame.

Breaststroke That Is Hard to Imitate and All but Impossible to Beat

~By Karen Crouse

Breaststrokers are fish of a different school, with styles straight out of Dr. Seuss: flat strokes, surge strokes, high strokes, low strokes.

At the moment, the quirkiest -- and quickest -- breaststroke among the women belongs to Rebecca Soni, the American-record holder for the 200-meter event and the fastest in the world this year in the 100 and the 200.

On the final night of the Pan Pacific Championships, Soni came within a half-second of her world record in the 200 breaststroke -- an event in which she owns the six fastest times this year -- with a clocking of 2 minutes 20.69 seconds.

American roulette - Contaminated dietary supplements

The New England Journal of Medicine

~By Pieter A. Cohen, M.D

In one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, one portly police sergeant has more to worry about than crime. His doctor had been encouraging him for years to lose weight, and like millions of other Americans, he decided to try a weight-loss supplement to help him shed his extra pounds. But instead of losing weight, he lost his job. According to the label, his diet pills, which were imported from Brazil and sold in the United States, contained vitamin E, centella, senna, and cascara, among other "natural" ingredients. Not included on the label was the amphetamine detected in his urine drug screen. The now-unemployed sergeant is not alone. Such contaminated supplements represent an emerging risk to public health.
