US Masters Nationals Photo Vault #3

There’s so much that can be said about this year’s USMS summer nationals but it’s hard to put into words the inspiration, fun and truly admirable accomplishments in the water – there were times posted by 30, 40 and 50 somethings that would stand up in a USA swimming senior meet.  There were people competing for the first time ever. There were stories of survival and recovery brought about through swimming.  So if a picture equals a 1000 words, here’s more stories in more images from the meet.
