imageThe holidays took a dive–into the pool, actually–earlier this month when the Atlanta Rainbow Trout hosted its festive St. Nicks Meet at Georgia Tech’s campus pool in Midtown.

The event returned Dec. 5 after a year’s absence and drew more than 170 participants from across the Southeast. Though it’s hosted by the city’s gay and lesbian swim club, it draws both gay and straight competitors.

A highlight is the Reindeer Relay that features swimmers with oversized holiday ornaments competing against one another.
