Peter Finn competes in swimming championships

Professor Peter Finn recently competed in the U.S. Masters Swimming Long Course Nationals competition in Indianapolis.

Finn placed fourth nationally in the 50 and 100 meter breaststroke. His relay team won gold medals in the 200 and 400 medley relay events. The team also broke the national record in the 400 medley relay. Finn's team members were Joel Stager, professor of kinesiology, Gary Hall Sr., IU alumnus and three-time Olympian, and Ed Silva, IU alumnus and graduate of Bloomington High School South.

The event is supported by U.S. Masters Swimming, a group founded in 1970 to promote continued competition for former swimmers.
