Olympic Gold Medal and Masters Swimmer Murray Rose
Murray Rose just died. He was Australia's champion distance swimmer in the 1950's and early 60's. He was also a swimmer that I tried to model my stroke after -- not as successfully as I would have wanted but style counts for something. Murray had both style and speed -- winning 3 Gold Medals in the 1956 Olympics held in Australia and then added a few more medals in the 1960 Rome Olympics. Swim On Murray, Swim On!
