I heard you can enter your USA swim times in to Masters, if this is true, how do you do that?

The results achieved by USMS swimmers participating in USA Swimming or FINA foreign meets are eligible for Top Ten and records without the need for an official observer to testify that the meet was conducted according to USMS rules, as was the case in the past. Masters World Records cannot be established in USA Swimming Meets.

For times to be eligible, the swimmer must have a current USMS registration/membership. Swimmers must represent USMS when USMS affiliation is allowed, or be registered with the organization conducting the meet when USMS affiliation is not allowed. USA Swimming requires swimmers to be registered with USA Swimming. Some countries require that the swimmer be registered with the organization conducting the meet. In such cases the swim is still eligible for USMS Records/Top Ten.

It is the responsibility of the swimmer to bring back the results and documentation and to request that the Top Ten recorder in his or her local LMSC submit the times.
