Because of the extreme weather conditions experienced during the month of January throughout the country, the USMS Long Distance Committee has extended the date by which all swims must be completed for the 2016 Speedo USMS 1-Hour ePostal National Championship from January 31 to February 10. Entries will still be due by February 10, 2016. For those swimmers whose birthday occurs between February 1 and February 10, their age will be their age of record as of January 31, 2016.
The U.S. Masters Swimming Board of Directors has appointed USMS Education Director Bill Brenner interim CEO. Brenner, who has been with USMS since 2011, will be responsible for National Office daily operations while USMS continues its search for a new CEO.
Candidates interested in applying for the CEO position may do so via Turnkey Search's job posting.
Preliminary results are now available.
