** The 100m Double Arm Backstroke Relay will be 4 swimmers each swimming 25m backstroke. All swimmers will start in the water. This is a tribute to John Bauman who was the face of Wisconsin Master Swimming for decades. It is also an excellent drill to correct over-reaching of the hands and arm behind the shoulders or head during the recovery of the arm. The meet director reserves the right to assign swimmers to this relay. If necessary, someone will demonstrate this stroke prior to the event,

John Bauman

This meet is named in recognition of all the work that John Bauman did for Wisconsin Masters Swimming. Returning to swimming shortly after Wisconsin Masters started in 1972, John was a driving force in the development and continuance of masters swimming in Wisconsin.

Over the years John has been Chair, Registrar, Secretary, Treasurer, maintained record times, submitted top 10 times, meet manager, hauled equipment to and from meets and generally helped build Wisconsin Masters Swimming into an organization of over 550 registered swimmers. John also worked with USMS to assign unique IDs to all swimmers. Whew!

It is important to note that John did all this while running his own business and competing at a high level with numerous National appearances, inspiring teammates along the way. John won two national championships, the last in the 50 Breaststroke at Riverside SCY in April 2017.

John is a wealth of information about swimming in Wisconsin. From city championships, pools in the area, where the coaches swam in college developing the long standing rivalries that still exist in the high schools today.
John said that he thought that “swimming was fun” and he did all this work so that he could swim.
