Olympic swimming may be over, but that is by no means the end of the summer racing season.  This week the US Master Swimming Summer Nationals are keeping the action going in Portland at the Mt. Hood Community College swim complex.  There’s nothing quite like a masters swimming championships where young and old come together to race and celebrate the sport we all love.  As always, there’s a host of Olympians and notables from the past still putting together fast swims.  We’re fortunate to share these images from swimming photographer Mike Lewis who’s on hand for USMS documenting the event.
