    Win Cammile Adams Signed Arena Cap & Goggles!

    World silver medalist in the 200m butterfly, Cammile Adams, was one of the captains of the U.S. Swim Team in Rio. The two-time Olympian wore the Arena Carbon Flex during races and we asked the Texas A&M graduate what key items she carried in her Arena bag during her time in Brazil!

    1) As a snack, I love to carry some nuts for energy just in case I get hungry. Blue Diamond almonds are my go-to option for that.
    2) I always carry at least one extra pair of goggles and in Rio I had the Pink Cobra mirrored goggles with me.
    3) I’m always pumping through some country music to stay focused and ready so I rocked my USA Beats headphones.
    4) Yes, I had bug spray with me for the mosquitoes that I never saw! But I wanted to be extra prepared.
    5) I always have to have some jewelry on so I took a Kendra Scott necklace with me in my bag.
    6) If the weather changes, I want to be prepared so I had an extra pair of Lululemon leggings.
    7) In Rio, I used the 3D Ultra Arena cap so I carried a bunch of those in there!

    Enter to win a Cammile Adams Signed Arena Cap & Arena Goggles! Just tell us your favorite moment in the pool in Rio below to enter. One entry per person. Must enter by Thursday, September 1 at 11:59pm PT. Winner selected at random.

    Watching Michael Phelps, he use to come to our pool when he was younger. So proud of Baltimore guy. As our Buck Showalter, Manager of the Baltimore Orioles says, I like our guy!

    My family enjoyed watching the swimming in Rio. I enjoyed the relays. I like to see the swimmers come together as teams in a sport that is mainly made up of individual events.

    Honestly I think my favorite moment was the Lifeguard sitting and watching the olympic swimming pool. There were so many good moments in the water but the meme afterwards had me in stitches...

    Every single race was a favorite moment, but the one that captivatated all the family was Michael Phelps winning the 200 fly. His face before the race and the actual race pure joy.

    Let me first say that all moments of victories and near victories by these swimmers were equally motivating, inspirational and entertaining for me. Each athlete in his/her own right paid a price to be swimming for the greatest team in the world. However, for me, there is nothing like an underdog who achieves the unexpected. The unassumed, who is able transcend the barriers of race, culture, gender, etc.; who, by his/her performance demonstrates how the spirit of hard work and perseverance is where the concept of "the land of opportunity" exists in the United States of America. Yesss...that spirit was demonstrated by Simone Manuel as she individually achieved her victories as an African American woman, but it was also exemplified by her teammates as they "collectively & harmoniously" won the 4X100 medley relay that she anchored. Job well-done ladies! It was a beautiful sight to behold. Warmly...Mary-Rayven

    Maya DiRado in the 200 back had me cheering her on up and out of my seat. What a swim and the opportunity to witness a true olympic moment of never giving up.
