I was watching the Charlotte Ultra Swim online and I noticed a familiar face… our Masters Executive Director Rob Butcher was swimming in the B Final of the men’s 100 Breaststroke! How cool is that. He was out there in his USMS cap representing for the rest of us masters in some very elite company.

During a later race Summer Sanders was talking with Rob and she joked that she might get back into swimming via masters… um yes please. Not only would it be good for the sport, I had a huge crush on her once upon a time and it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see her at a masters meet :)

    Awesome for Rob, he is doing us right but Summer Sanders is on my list of people I wish would “spontaneously combust” over the use of the R-Word – Her wiki page was edited May 7th too and I believe her use of it was edited out. I am not sure.

    You don’t have to post this comment if you don’t want to.

    I had to Google around to see what you were talking about… I hadn’t heard about that before. In all honesty I don’t know much about her besides her swimming and I thought she was really hot when I was like 14. It’s too bad that kind of stuff had to come out of her mouth, but I still think she could generate some positive buzz for masters. I’d like to see more retired elite type folks come out and join the rest of us in the pool.

    Hey guys – EVERYONE should swim!

    I bet I overuse the R-word… have no idea what that is – ??

    I am so frustrated about missing the tv coverage today of the UltraSwim! But I had to be in MV to swim in the animal lane :)

    I do want one of those cool new USMS swim caps that R.Butcher was sporting!
