I thought it would be a cool idea to learn more about the individuals that make up masters swimming and share their stories with the blog.

I’m opening this up to any masters swimmer anywhere in the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re fast or slow, and it doesn’t matter if you compete or only swim for fitness. It just matters that you’re a masters swimmer and you’d like to share a little bit about yourself with my website. If you would like to be featured answer the questions below and mail them to rob@robaquatics.com. I also encourage you to send me a picture or two of yourself swimming or at the pool if you have some.

Please feel free to forward this to your swimming friends, I’m curious to hear their stories too! I set up a dedicated page for this project here, and these profiles will be in the blog as well. If you have any questions for me or have a good question to add to my list, send them to rob@robaquatics.com

Thank you! – Rob D.
