PHOENIX, Arizona, April 9. FROM the IOC stripping Lance Armstrong of his Olympic cycling medal to competing as masters swimmer, the disgraced cycling star continues to make headlines. Using Armstrong as an example, Swimming World Magazine guest contributor Phillip Whitten presents an incredible in-depth analysis of the steps the IOC needs to take to "right all of the wrongs" caused by doping in Olympic swimming.

Whitten's article is presented as the April 2013 Swimming World Magazine Voice for the Sport. Total Access Subscribers have access to the full article, including an impressive array of graphs and charts that illustrate which athletes should be awarded medals once the identified Olympic dopers are taken out of the equation.

ON THE COVER: A bout with prostate cancer was not going to keep Bob Strand down. Less than six months after surgery to remove the tumor, he was back in the pool, setting FINA Masters world records for men 65-69. His accomplishments earned him recognition as one of Swimming World Magazine's Top 12 World Masters Swimmers of the Year for 2012. (See stories, pages 10 and 32.) [COVER PHOTO BY STEPHANIE NORTH]
