Carson senior swimmer part of No. 1 ranking
The Carson Aquatic Center can proudly claim one-half of a Master’s Relay Team that is No. 1 in the 2010 FINA World Rankings in two relays and second in two more.
Pierre Hathaway, 80, of Carson City and Dr. Harry Goldsmith, 81, of Glenbrook, are part of the S.E.X. Team (that’s “Severely Elderly Xercisers”) that swims as part of the Alameda Aquatic Masters club. The other two members, who live in the Bay Area, are Augie Motmans, 83, who with Hathaway are Palo Alto High graduates and Ash Jones, 79, who Hathaway swam with at Stanford.
After a couple years of waiting, last year the relay team crept into the 320-359 age group. In the SCM (Short Course Meters, i.e. 25 meter pool) 400-meter medley relay they were the only team, in their age group, in the world who swam that event in 2010. In the SCM 200 freestyle relay (50 meters each), six teams submitted times and the group was second, only 3.6 seconds behind the first ranked team.
In LCM (50 meter pool), they competed in the 400 freestyle relay and were first out of four teams, nearly two minutes ahead of the second-place team from Australia.
In the individual events, Hathaway was eighth in the 80-84 LCM 200 backstroke and Jones was 10th in two SCM individual medley events in the 75-79 bracket.
