Could you please pass on to the announcer the proper way to say my son's name? He has a good chance of making finals on Tuesday and for tonight's finals, he butchered our name.

The name is:  DURONIO
pronounced:  DER-oh-nee-oh

Please make an effort to say his name properly! He swims the 200 free on Tuesday.

Thanks very much!!
