008 BRENT RUTEMILLER ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT AS ISHOF CEO AND SWIMMING WORLD MAGAZINE PUBLISHER
by John Lohn
After five years as the CEO of the International Swimming Hall of Fame and more than 30 years in multiple roles with Swimming World Magazine, most recently as publisher, Brent Rutemiller has announced his retirement. His decision comes on the heels of a courageous battle with cancer, which is in early remission, and his tenure can only be measured as highly successful.

010 HOW CARSON FOSTER IS FULFILLING POTENTIAL AS NEXT AMERICAN MEDLEY STAR
by David Rieder
Carson Foster had just swum 4:06.56 for the silver medal in the 400 IM at the recent World Championships in Budapest—more than two seconds behind Leon Marchand’s 4:04.28. To the uninformed eye, the race appeared a crushing defeat for Foster, but he had actually produced the best swim of his life by an enormous margin, becoming the third fastest American ever behind Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

014 COMMENTARY: BACKSTROKE FINISH RULE NEEDS CHANGE AFTER JUSTIN RESS DQ ORDEAL
by David Rieder
Justin Ress was initially disqualified after touching first in the 50 backstroke at World Championships for fully submerging at the finish—which was later overturned, with Ress reinstated as the winner. It’s time for FINA and the other powers in swimming to rewrite the backstroke finish rule so no swimmer at the World Championships—or your local club meet—is DQ’ed for a tick-tack infraction on a backstroke finish.

017 CHINA WRAPS UP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 13-FOR-13 IN DIVING MEDALS
by Matthew De George
China swept the last three diving medals at the recent World Championships over the final two days of competition, completing a perfect 13-for-13 run for the diving superpower. All told, China took 17 medals from 13 events, with 13 gold, two bronze and two silver.

018 MADDIE MUSSELMAN SCORES FIVE GOALS; U.S. WOMEN’S WATER POLO WINS FOURTH STRAIGHT TITLE
by Matthew De George
Behind five goals from MVP Maddie Musselman, the United States overcame Hungary, 9-7, in the women’s water polo final at the 2022 FINA World Championships. It’s the fourth consecutive title for the Americans—an unbroken streak dating back to 2015—and seventh overall since 2003.

020 BEFORE THE HEROICS OF JASON LEZAK, AMERICAN BRUCE HAYES DELIVERED GROSS-BUSTING ANCHOR FOR 1984 RELAY GOLD
by Matthew De George
Against seemingly insurmountable odds, Bruce Hayes anchored the U.S. 800 free relay at the 1984 Olympics with the best swim of his life to pull off a stunner for gold after coming from behind on the last 100 meters to touch out West Germany’s Michael Gross, the 200 free world record holder, by 4-hundredths of a second.

022 A SUMMER OF REDEMPTION FOR TEAM USA VETERAN AND DISTANCE STAR LEAH SMITH
by Matthew De George
After not qualifying for the U.S. Olympic team headed for Tokyo, the summer of 2021 could’ve been the end of the road for veteran Leah Smith, who had won two medals five years earlier at the Rio Olympics. But it says something about Smith’s fortitude and character that she came back from that adversity and was as good as ever at the 2022 FINA World Championships.

024 BUDAPEST MIRAGE? ASSESSING U.S. DOMINANCE AT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
by David Rieder
Although this year’s World Championships was very different from years past, with so many stars of the Tokyo Olympics not competing, the American dominance, nevertheless, was unmistakable. Team USA finished with 45 medals, the most ever by one country at a World Championships, shattering the previous record of 38 from 2017—and they finished with 17 gold medals.
