US Masters Nationals - Last Hurrah for Tech Suits!

The pool deck was buzzing with adrenaline and excitement in Atlanta this past weekend for the US Master's Short Course National Championships - also known as the last hurrah for tech suits.
Several of blueseventy's finest raced the best in the country in the pool that hosted the 1996 Olympic Games.

Starting the meet off with the distance events - Jeff Erwin shattered the existing record in the mile with a time of 16:08. blueseventy's USMS First Lady Laura Val took home wins across the board with a national record in the 200 IM and Oregon native Dennis Baker set a national record in the 400 IM and touched out the competition for a win in the 200 Fly. Rounding out the IM's, Mike Ross took 1st with a national record in the field favorite 100 IM while Rich Burns set a record in the 200 IM. Rowdy Gaines had a narrow victory in the 200 Free but dominated the field in the 100 and 50 yard freestyle. Rowdy sported the new neroTX anchoring Team Blue Frog's 200 Free Relay.
