Great story, fun to learn about someone new.


At 50, Curtis won five gold medals in the United States masters championships. She seemed unimpressed.
“My times were terrible,” she said. “I did a complete turnaround and took up tennis.”lol.

Yeah, you can see her results here: http://www.usms.org/comp/1976_scnats_results.pdf

She is incorrectly listed as Ann Aurtis Cuneo. Looks like she won the 50, 100, 200 and 500 free. I'm assuming her fifth win must have been in a relay. I don't see her in another individual event.
