Olympic gold medalist and NBC announcer Rowdy Gaines set another masters swimming record yesterday at the 2009 US Masters Swimming National Championships in California with a 1:43.76 in the 200-yard freestyle. Perhaps his blazing speed at the masters championships was aided by a taper and an open water swim at Lucky's Lake?
Rowdy is shown above in Florida last week with Dr. Lucky Meisenheimer who donated US$1,000 to the YMCA's Aquatic Center Scholarship Fund because of Rowdy's participation. Rowdy and Lucky are photographed in from the the Wall of Fame at Lucky's Lake.
The festivities of the latest happenings at Lucky's Lake can be seen here.
