The 62-year-old said there was added pressure in Munich, but that his experience in Mexico helped him rise to the occasion. Spitz believed it would be a similar story for Magnussen in four years at Rio de Janeiro. 'He'll gain that experience of having been to an Olympics,' Spitz said at the Australian launch of New Vitality supplements in Sydney."

Judy Holloway swims for fitness. Christy Zolla was a collegiate athlete with swimming in her blood. These days, they work out side by side as members of the new Santa Maria Swim Club Masters Swimming Program at Paul Nelson Pool. “You get something from swimming as a group,” Zolla said. “It’s a competitiveness that drives you to work harder, to motivate each other. You swim better with a little pressure, and it’s more fun.” The team is affiliated with U.S. Masters Swimming, or USMS, a national organization that, since 1970, has provided organized workouts, competitions, clinics and workshops across the country for adults age 18 and older."
