Swimming Down Memory Lane

1972 Masters swim meet in Atlanta

USMS was founded in 1970 by Captain Ransom Arthur. The rich history of masters swimming in the US will be featured in a presentation at the International Aquatic History Symposium and Film Festival on May 10: “Forty Years of US Masters Swimming.”

These are some great pictures! We’ve come a long way. Feel free to contribute your thoughts and recollections in a USMS forum thread devoted to the topic; and send your old pictures if you want to share them with the LMSC.

The history and archives section of the USMS website is always a great place to discover more about the swimmers and history of masters swimming in the US.
