You’ve no doubt seen the Kmart Joe Boxer ad. Male models in tuxes, and boxers, playing a bell choir as if inspired by Elvis Presley. The Waynesboro Family YMCA is riffing off the viral video to promote its Black Friday membership drive.
Rule, 14, swimming for the Waynesboro YMCA team, finished with a time of 2:12.92, 1.40 seconds behind national champion Courtney Weaver of Flint, Mich.
Rule’s time broke a Virginia state 14-and-under record for the event and is the 12th-fastest time ever for a 14-year-old swimmer.
Rule also was within the qualifying time for the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials in the 200-meter butterfly. She had already qualified for the trials and a chance to compete in the 2012 London Olympics earlier in the summer.
