010 GOOSEBUMP MOMENTS OF 2015
By Andy Ross
There were a lot of moments from 2015 where I got goosebumps from watching certain swimmers do well, or just from seeing truly impressive performances. Here are some of those goosebump-inducing moments.

014 SWIMMING: A SHARED LANGUAGE IN THE U.S.A. AND JAPAN

016 SWIM LIKE AN AGE-GROUPER… PERFORM LIKE A CHAMPION

024 RICH ABRAHAMS, REWRITING THE RECORD BOOKS AT 70
by Nicole Cassou
For most aging adults, hitting a milestone like 70 is not something to look forward to. The opposite is true in Masters swimming, where aging up brings not apathy, but excitement for a whole new set of goals.

026 THE OLYMPIC MOTTO: FASTER, HIGHER, STRONGER?
by Seren Jones
Aruba’s Jordy Groters is entering his sophomore year at the University of Missouri and already has far more swimming experience than his fellow teammates.

028 SMILE. YOU’LL SWIM FASTER
by Cathleen Pruden
When you find yourself dreading a rep, struggling through a practice, or afraid of a race, try something new: smile.

030 THE LAST MAN SWIMMING: DR. SCOTT SPANN
by Tera Bradham
One second before a devastating collision that would change the course of his life, he wasn’t thinking about the fact that he was a seven-time NCAA champion.

032 STRONG WOMEN ARE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN: GROWING UP IN A SWIMMER’S BODY
by Lillian Nelson
Whether you are 13 years old and just growing into your body, or 20 years old and reshaping your body with college swimming, this sport really forces you to be aware of your own presence.

033 A MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO HIDE THEIR INJURIES
by Kaylie Noll
Injuries happen in our sport. And they can happen to anyone. You aren’t the only one in the swimming world that’s ever been in serious pain; so don’t be afraid to speak up, and get yourself help as soon as possible.
