Someone or ones took the time and effort to list the results of every Nationals swum by USMS back to the first in 1970.Whoever did it thank you:bow::cheerleader:.It is very interesting to look back at the times from the early 70s to see how far we've come(for instance the winning 200 BR time in the 60-64 age group at Indy this year would have won the 200 Free in that age group at the first LCM Nats in 1973.)It was also interesting for me to be reminded of some of the swimmers from back then(my first Nats was 1975.)

This has been a HUGE undertaking by the USMS History and Archives Committee which is headed by San Diego's Barbara Dunbar.

Really interesting to go back and look over times and names from the past!
Coaches might consider checking on some of their swimmers past lives to pull some inspiration!
I looked back and found many of our Mission Viejo Nadadores Masters original pioneers who launched the team back in the early 70s.
All are still swimming masters!

I know that the H&A Committee is still looking to fill in some holes in the USMS competition results history. They are keeping history for pool and open water results.

Thanks Barbara and committee!

What was Paul Smith's time in the 100 free in the 35-39 AG back in 1970?
