024    TAKEOFF TO TOKYO: SWIMMING’S FIRST FEMALE SUPERSTAR
by John Lohn

    Magnini relationship a huge stain on Fede career, totally ignored in SW puff piece. No one asks her about that?? Surprising lack of journalistic ethos with C. Lord at helm, expect better.

    Masters swimming needs to join the 21st century and test their “top 12 masters swimmers” for PED’s. Not all of them are “clean.” Track and Field, cycling, and triathlon all do testing.
