Back in the day, “DQ’d” might have meant we had taken a trip to Dairy Queen. Now that I’m a swim parent, getting “DQ’d” has a far less positive meaning. While I’ve gotten over the initial trauma of seeing my swimmer disqualified from a backstroke race more than once (for poorly executing the flip turn), I feel I must DQ Splash magazine for their editing prowess in their backstroke description.

What goes through your mind when you're backstroking?
