Tuli lueskeltua porukoiden luona vanhoja Uinti-lehtiä ja yllä joulun aikana löytynyt vuoden 1998 Nuorten EM-uintien aikarajat. Täältä (.pdfwarning!) löytyy seuraavan kesän rajat, mukana myös uusi B-raja nuoremmille uimareille. Vertailun tekeminen ei ehkä ole tarpeellista koska ei ole tiedossa rajojen asettamisen raamit vuonna 1998…

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.
