A handful of swimmers are representing our LMSC in some far-flung locations, at the 14th FINA World Masters Championships (Riccione, Italy) and the USMS Summer National Championship (Omaha, NE, at the Olympic Trials pool).
Summer means long course season! There are two June meets that are drive-able for most people in our LMSC: the ENC Long Course Splash on June 9 and the Subway Commonwealth Games of Virginia on June 30.
Entry deadlines for the two premiere open water swims in our LMSC — the Jack King 1-mile Ocean Swim and the Chris Greene Cable Swims — are approaching. Enter both today!
With warmer weather upon us, it is time to think about leaving the confines of the pool behind and venturing out into the open water. There are plenty of open water events within driving distance on our calendar.
