Meet information and registration link

UMD is a great facility that has regularly hosted USMS Colonies Zone Championships and has previously hosted high level competitions such as USA Swimming National Championships in the summer of 2004.

USMS Summer Nationals recap:

Although there were no Niagara swimmers at the meet, there were many highlights of the meet.

2011 FINA World Championships gold medalist Mark Gangloff returned from China and swam the 50 meter breaststroke in a time of :27.96 to claim the Men's 25-29 World Record.

Two active members of the USMS blogging community set World Records as well:

  • Leslie Livingston went a :32.55 in the Women's 50-54 50 LCM Backstroke.
  • Chris Stevenson went a 2:15.83 in the Men's 45-49 LCM Backstroke.

Anyone interested in learning more about how high level USMS swimmers train should definitely check out the blogs.

Leslie (aka The Fortress) posts her daily workouts and they tend to be sprinter oriented. Her blog can be viewed at this link: The FAF AFAP Digest.

Chris also posts his daily workouts, which have a good mix of stroke and middle distance work. Chris' training journal can be viewed by registered members of the USMS discussion forum community. Registration is free.

The Middlebury Muffintops hosted this summer's Colonies Zone LCM Championship at Middlebury College this past weekend. The last four years they hosted the New England LMSC Championships at this venue, which is open to all LMSCs. Hopefully they will continue to host a long course meters event every year. The location is only a 5-6 hour drive from most parts of the Niagara region, so I would encourage everyone to get out there next year!

Niagara was represented by two swimmers: Pete Kaemmerlen (27) and Greg Danner (30). They won their age group for all of the events they competed in and set new Championship Meet Records in 9 of the 11 events. Greg's 200 Fly time of 2:08.55 is 9th on the FINA World Masters Top Ten LCM All-Time list in the 30-34 age group. That race is available for viewing in our new Videos section.

There were two World Records broken by Canadians at the meet:

Lynn Marshall Carleton Univ - Ontario 50-54 Female - 800 Freestyle 9:38.04
Ian Smith YMCA Montreal 70-74 Male - 50 Freestyle 28.35

Complete results are located in our Results section. There are a dozen photos in the Gallery from the meet. Check out the nice facility!
