Swimming History: July 25, 1925

For those of you interested in swimming history from the silent film era, check out the following website and download the day's competition recaps from the Bottrap Swim Stadium in Germany.

July 25, 1925 Kreisfest

You'll notice a variety of events including: Synchronized Swimming and the 100M Freestyle relay (notice that there are only three legs to the relays). You'll also get to see Double-Arm Backstroke as an optional component to the backstroke event. Equally interesting is the Women's Breastroke (3x100) relay and diving from a 9M platform! The clip concludes with a lifeguard competition and Water Polo.

It's seven minutes long, but very interesting!

Quote for the Week of November 28, 2005

"As the skipper used to say, 'Where's that effing dog?', and you'd take a look and you'd see it swimming away behind like." ~David Walker

David Walker (September 28, 1785 - June 28, 1830) was a black abolitionist. He was born in Wilmington, North Carolina. In the 1820s he made a living from a clothing store that he had set up. In Boston, Walker made acquaintances with black right's activists and was involved with the Freedom's Journal of New York City, which was the first African American newspaper. In September, 1829, he published a pamphlet entitled Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World, which was directed towards the enslaved men and women of the South. Because of Walker's Appeal, which caused many slaves to gain hope of becoming free, plantation owners created a $3,000 reward for anyone who killed Walker, and a $10,000 reward for anyone who brought him back alive. In June 1830, not long after publishing the third edition of his Appeal, David Walker was found dead in his home. Many believe he was poisoned, although there is no evidence to support that allegation.

Quote for the Week of November 21, 2005

"Believe in yourself, not only in swimming, but in life itself. You always have to have fun. You have to have an open mind. If you're not enjoying it, don't do it. Life's too short." ~Debbie Meyer

Debbie Meyer (born August 14, 1952 Annapolis, Maryland) won the 200m, 400m and 800m freestyle swimming events in the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, at 16 years old becoming the first swimmer and first female to win three individual gold medals. Her winning times were 2:10.5 for 200m, 4:31.8 for 400m and 9:24.0 for 800m, all of them new Olympic records. A sufferer from asthma, she also broke twenty world records, which landed her in the Olympic Hall of Fame, broke 24 United States records and won 19 Amateur Athletic Union championships.

In 1969 she was named Associated Press Athlete of the Year. In 1972 she retired from competition. She owns the Debbie Meyer Swim School.

On 5 July 2004 she was inducted into the United States National High School Hall of Fame.

In memory of her Olympic achievement she uses the custom car licence plate 3GOLD68.
