Last month, Marie Kelleher became the first USMS female swimmer to compete in the 100-104 age group, and that clearly got a lot of attention: when the fact was posted in the USMS Facebook page, the item received the most “likes” ever (by far) on that page. But it’s not just masters swimmers who admire Marie: she has been getting some notice from the mainstream national press.
- She appeared on the National Public Radio website: “She’s 100 (Almost) And Still Swimming“
- She was featured in Sports Illustrated as one of the June 11 “Faces in the Crowd”
We’re all proud of you, Marie: keep on swimming!
