The FINA (world) masters top ten rankings for 2011 are out for both short course meters (SCM) and long course meters (LCM) competition. Members of our LMSC had several noteworthy performances! Our members notched 103 top ten marks (90 individual, 13 relay), including 7 top-ranked swims!
Shirley Loftus-Charley once again demonstrated her versatility, achieving top ten rankings in 18 events (SCM and LCM). Beth Schreiner (12 rankings), Kelly Parker Palace (11) and Johnnie Dietrick (10) also showed impressive range. Two swimmers — Johnnie and Chris Stevenson — achieved world-best rankings over the past year. A printable list of all the swims from our members is available.
Congratulations, swimmers! One way to keep up the great work is to enter the FINA Masters World Championships in Riccione, Italy; the deadline is Apr 23.
