USMS Award Recipient

U.S. Masters Swimming Fitness Award

Recipient: Jody Welborn
Year: 2004
LMSC: Oregon

Jody Welborn received the U.S. Masters Fitness Award in 2004. Jodi, as a member of the Oregon Masters, was director of the 2004 Check Off Challenge. This event allows for swimmers of all levels to test their skills in all of the events contested in pool meets without the stress of attending a meet. Not to say that swimming the event in a meet does not count toward the outcome, it is just that it is not necessary to contest the event in a meet setting. The event attracted more than 300 participants allowing the Oregon Masters to reap the benefits in the amount of $1500.00, making this a very successful year for the event.
