The Board of your Ohio Local Masters Swim Committee is pleased to announce a one-of-a-kind event for our membership: A unique Swim Clinic, Workout and Meet & Greet led by multi-gold medalist and the recognized color commentator for the sport, Rowdy Gaines.

"We wanted to give our swimmers in Ohio something special and thank them for their continued participation in US Masters Swimming" said Pete Tarnapoll, Ohio LMSC Chair. "There's nobody more accomplished in the swimming world, both in the water and behind the mike, than Rowdy. We're so lucky and thankful that he's coming to Ohio to share his time, expertise and swimming pedigree with us."

In order to provide the best possible experience for our membership the event will be held in Miami University's warm-water diving well, which has eight 25-meter lanes. "This will allow us to maximize the amount of time we can spend in the water, without attendees getting too cold" said Jen Wood, Ohio LSMC Registrar.

The event will be limited to 75 attendees, on a first-come-first-served basis. "This will allow me to spend time with each attendee in the pool, on the deck and during our meet-and-greet," said Rowdy Gaines. "And, that's what I love to do!"
