Supportive Wishes for Nathan Adrian

Olympic Gold Medalist Nathan Adrian was the keynote speaker at our 2018  Pacific Masters annual meeting. He was vivacious and enthusiastic with an infectious smile. Patiently signing autographs and staying to help hand out awards, we felt honored to have him be a part of our celebration.
We congratulate him for his most recent win: beating testicular cancer. He bravely tells his story on The Today Show.
