Polar Bear Meet Report

Over 70 swimmers participated in the 16th Annual Polar Bear Classic swim meet on Sunday January 29, 2006. The meet was held at the University of Arizona's Hillenbrand Aquatic Center on a warm, sunny day with temperatures in the mid 70's. Not a single polar bear was seen all day.

There were many outstanding swims for such an early season meet. But 86 year old Max Von Isser stole the show with his National Record shattering 50 yard fly time of 43.02. This broke the previous mark in the Men's 85-89 age group by over 4 seconds!

Thanks to Fred Paavola, Jon Borendame and Tim Krapp for officiating and Salpointe High School students for timing the event. Hope to see everyone at the Arizona Masters Short Course Yards State Meet on March 24-26, 2006.
