Granite Bay Olympic swimmer wins Silver in the 10k today

When Olympic athlete Haley Anderson took to the open water for a 10K Swim in London’s Hyde Park this morning, family and friends watched it live and cheered her on.

Haley is from Granite Bay and was the only American swimming in this race.

A three-time Pac-10 champion, Haley Anderson holds USC records in the 1000y and 1650y free and the 800y free relay as well as a USC pool record in the 500y free. She attends University of Southern California. Her sister Alyssa also swims for the U.S Olympic team and won gold earlier in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay.

"Seeing her get a medal, it was like, "Oh, now I have to do it,' " said Haley, "You know that sister rivalry."

Alyssa rooted from the grandstand. The sisters hugged after the medal ceremony.

"It was the best feeling ever," Haley said.

And the Winners are...

And the Winners are...

 

News10 My Neighborhood ran a week-long sweepstakes contest last week. 

We asked our vusers to submit their definition of HOOPLA, and when they did, their names were automatically submitted into a random drawing.  Then, four lucky winners would receive four passes each to Golfland SunSplash.

This dictionary quiz sweepstakes contest was inspired as part of News10's Reading Connects campaign which is all about connecting with our community to help improve the literacy rate.

Well, we received over 90 responses, and some people were thoughtful enough to email us a sentence with the word HOOPA in it.  Here are some examples:
