The fun continues: USMS Nationals Day 3 Photo Vault

  2 SwimSwam | May 03rd, 2014 | Featured, Lifestyle, Masters, News, Photo Fishbowl

The NorCal fun just keeps rolling at the George Haines International Swim Center as the U.S. Masters Swimming spring nationals closed out day 3.  The buzz amongst crowd included a near-miss of the 100 free American Record by Nathan Adrian (41.13).  But that wasn’t all there was;  age group by age group the fast swimming continued and fun was there for the taking.

(Update: Adrian’s swim was originally reported as tying the American record at 41.08, but a statement from USMS on Sunday announced that this was a timing error, and his actual time was a 41.13. You can read the statement here.)

Here’s what sports photographer Mike Lewis pulled in through his lenses.
