Duffield on Newstands Today
They're really using up the cover ink, those Arizona Masters swimmers of Ford Aquatics in Tucson. First it was Jeff Commings on the cover of USMS Swimmer. Today, Newsweek came out with our boy Brian Duffield on its cover, afloat in a pose sure to be familiar to his fellow swimmers. You may recall Brian's article in Swim Arizona last summer, chronicling his miraculous recovery from cardiac arrest immediately following a swim workout. The Newsweek article addresses the new technology used in Brian's case, whereby his body was "cooled" to aid in his recovery. Having corrected the blockage that caused his episode in the first place, and now monitoring his heart health carefully, Brian has recovered completely from his ordeal and will be swimming in La Jolla this September.
