Rowdy Gaines - LIMU's World Class Olympic Gold Medalist
A big congratulation and thank you to each and every last swimmer who participated in the 3rd Annual Rowdy Gaines Masters Classic on October 14-16! We’re so very glad to everyone who came out and are hopeful you’ll return for when we do it all over again in 2012.
12 world records were broken by TEAM BLU FROG. Of those 14 swimmers, 4 are Olympians, 2 are former National Team members and the rest are just swimmers leading a healthy lifestyle and now can call themselves a world record holder. Many of these individuals never miss a day without drinking a BLU FROG energy drink to help them boost their performance in the water.
Below is a listing of the world records set per individual and race.
TEAM BLU FROG started in 2009 with Rowdy as its only member. In just three short years, it has grown to 60 with 23 women, 37 men and an average age of 40. The team has risen in rank from 79th, to 27th to 10th overall out of 180 teams at the 2010 Nationals. At the RG Masters Classic, they topped the chart of combined team scores out of 34 teams (results listed below). With 6 Olympians, the President of International Swimming Hall of Fame, an NBC NFL sideline reporter, as well as doctors, lawyers, teachers, coaches, housewives and 4 additional LIMU staff, this group has set a goal to be National Champions in 2013. The LIMU Company is proud to sponsor such a diverse group of individuals who are living a healthy, active lifestyle powered by LIMU.
