ON THE COVER

This is the look of someone who just set her first world record—pure happiness and joy! When Team Elite’s Kathleen Baker touched the wall at the finish of the women’s 100 meter backstroke at this summer’s U.S. nationals, she looked at the scoreboard, thrust her left arm into the air and spun around 360 degrees. She was in shock at the time she saw: 58.00! “It’s so crazy to be able to look at that time and say that I’m the fastest woman ever in the 100 backstroke,” she said. “It’s a been a goal of mine pretty much my whole life to have a world record.” (See feature, page 26.)
