Do you have Masters swimmers whose only concern is how fast they swim and fear the inevitability of getting slower? Remind them that swimming is about more than becoming faster. Medical research has shown that swimming slows the aging process, loss of muscle mass, reduction of cognitive brain function, and decreased libido as swimmers get older. Your swimmers might not be swimming as fast, but they're getting better.
