Not only is it uncommon for a team to repeat as national champs, it's extremely rare to have both men's and women's teams from the same school do it together, in back-to-back years.

But that's exactly what the Cal Bears men's and women's swimming teams have accomplished. Call it the double-double, or whatever superlative you can think of because Cal just became the fourth school ever to have it's men's and women's swimming and diving teams repeat as national champs.

Read more about the men's and women's championships.

As Cal alumni and former members of the Cal swim team, Christian and I are euphoric over our alma mater's amazing achievement. And, on behalf of all of us at Splash Swim School we're extremely proud and wish to congratulate coaches Teri McKeever and David Durden, along with all members of the championship teams!

Kind of makes you want to sign up for a swimming lesson, doesn't it?

Way to go Bears!
