Momentous Male Milestones

Visit the Swimming World Magazine Vault to Read More.

In February, Swimming World highlighted women in swimming who busted through barriers. This month, we’re celebrating their male counterparts who stretched the bounds of the sport.

Our generation is spoiled to have had Michael Phelps, The Greatest Olympian of All Time, grace us with his explosive performances, Olympiad after Olympiad. But Phelps had many predecessors who parted the chlorinated waters for the phenoms of the future.

Phelps, Mark Spitz, Johnny Weissmuller, Matt Biondi, Adolph Kiefer, Rick DeMont, Tom Jager, and Grant Hackett are mong those highlighted in the June issue.

To read more about some of the men who broke down barriers in swimming, check out the June 2017 issue, available now!
