USMS Award Recipient

U.S. Masters Swimming Dorothy Donnelly Service Award

Recipient: Cristina Kawamoto
Year: 2019
LMSC: New Mexico

An active member of the New Mexico LSMC for well over 15 years, Cristina served as the Registrar for NM and was a wonderful “first face” to greet new members to the LMSC. She could be counted on to send updated information to the members in a timely manner. A USMS Certified Coach, Cristina had a “toolbox” full of gadgets, toys, and ideas, which contributed to the continual improvement in herself as well as her swimmers. She taught, trained, and encouraged several inexperienced swimmers to go all the way the USMS Championship meets. Cristina also volunteered her time to be a Stroke and Turn judge at Masters meets.
