Does USMS adjust for altitude in the results as USA-Swimming does? Just did a meet at 7320 and with the USA-S adjustment, it was my fastest 1500 ever. Without, not so much.

Nope....7000 feet hurts doesn't it?

USMS does allow for altitude adjustments for times achieved at an altitude of 3,000 feet or higher, but only for national qualifying times purposes only.

I read that and thought it said ATTITUDE adjustment. Boy, do I need one of those!

Luckily I'm used to the altitude most days since I live here. But for top 10, it would be nice. USA-Swimming does adjust for altitude for their Top 16 but not for records.

Those 32.5 sec on the 1500 would be really nice right about now.
