Everyone from USMS should vote. The swimming nominees are Rowdy,Mary T.,the 76 Womens FR,and coach George Haines ! All of them are REALLY deserving. Get your friends to vote.

Indeed. If Bob Hayes doesn't make it, there is something wrong with the system. Same with Darrel Pace and Greg Barton.

1968 4X400 relay - A truly terrifying combination of runners.

Herb Brooks - No. Was basically a one hit wonder (admittedly, one H@ll of a hit). Bowerman, Temple and Fassi were far more influential in their respective sports and produced quite a string of Olympic athletes over the years. I don't know anything about Haines, however.

Haines is clearly the one to vote for!!!! Not only is he the swim coach he is THE SWIM COACH. His swimmers probably produced more Olympic medals than the other coaches combined.
