Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.
GBR’s Gordon Mason, an open water and distance specialist who trains with Team Santa Monica in California, will be part of the Arizona State class of 2024.

All of Mason’s top SCY times are from the 2018 Kevin B. Perry Invite in November. Last summer, Mason represented Team Great Britain at the 2019 World Championships in Gwangju, where he raced to a 42nd-place finish in the 5K contest.
The Sun Devils just lost their top distance swimmer, Ben Olszewski, who has exhausted his NCAA eligibility. Last season, he led the team in the 500 free (4:14.38) and the mile (14:52.84). ASU had four men under 4:20 in the 500 at 2020 Pac-12s, but Olszewski was the only miler under 15:10 last season. Mason will come in ready to be one of their top distance swimmers as a freshman.
Mason would’ve snagged a 15th-place finish in the mile at the 2020 Pac-12 Champs.
