The World of Masters Swimming has been providing an alternative view to the water contact sport known as Masters Swimming since 1995. It was last upgraded in 2013 to a simplified responsive layout for viewing on portable devices (except for the humungus ranking tables).
Whether you swim like a fish or like a fish out of water, swimming stimulates the touch and visual senses in ways that are not always obvious. Since you only need protective gear for the eyes and wear very little else, there is really no other comparative activity in which you can totally immerse yourself.
As the webmaster has been resident in Hong Kong since the dawn of time, local Masters swimming competition information for the current 2013/14 season can be found in the Masters section.
Out to Pasture
We all know that time waits for no-one and you know you are getting older when you begin to believe there are three kinds of people; those who can count, and those who can't.
Over the Hill
You can take heart however because masters swimmers know that it is only when you are over the hill that you can pick up speed.
On Cloud Nine
A masters swimmer may not be an expert (where x is an unknown quantity and spurt is a drip under pressure) but they do have exceptional skills and is an original from which copies are made.
