USMS Award Recipient

U.S. Masters Swimming Kerry O'Brien Coaches Award

Recipient: Cynthia Krass
Year: 2008
LMSC: Pacific Northwest

Four years ago, Cynthia Krass, a former UCLA 200-fly specialist, started a Masters swim program at Columbia Athletic Club in Sammamish, Wash. Cynthia’s spirit and dedication, combined with her attention to detail, has created the thriving program with barely enough room to accommodate its members. Cynthia begins each workout with a technical focus and moves into a workout that is tailored for a variety of abilities. She has inspired many of the team to attend local competitions including the PNA Championships. Congratulations Coach Cynthia!
