Noel Strauss

Chas Morton. Cynthia Woodhead. Michelle Richardson. Mary T. Meagher. Jesse Vassallo. Bobby Hackett. Dara Torres. Jeff Kostoff. Troy Dalbey. Tiffany Cohen. What do they all have in common?

They are the only individuals left who have held on longer than this guy.

In Little Rock last weekend, I stumbled upon a masters meet. Someone pointed out that I was looking at a national record holder. I thought it was going to be a masters record holder. Silly me. I had no idea I was about to meet a guy whose name I have known since I was just a junior swim-geek.

I will let him tell you about the record he holds. I am just thrilled that I got to meet him and see him swim. Enjoy.

  1. Wow, a 'real' record holder! Not that I have anything against masters age group records (they're all faster than me). Just that the level of competition we're used to seeing doesn't come close to that shown by our age group and open swimming progeny.
