SWIM WITH THE CHAMPIONS

There's still time for register for the Fourth Annual Rowdy Gaines Masters Classic. This is a swim meet like no other. Not only will you get the chance to take a FREE swim clinic with three-time Olympic gold medalist and Growing Bolder contributor Rowdy Gaines, you also might find yourself in a lane next to a former Olympian. But the thing that makes this meet really special is how wide, varied and welcoming the entire field is. You'll meet people of all ages and all places. Click here to watch our coverage of the very first event. Last year, we started a new tradition -- handing out the Growing Bolder Inspiration Award. The first one went to NBC Sports reporter Andrea Kremer because she was bold enough to push herself out of her comfort zone and try something she'd never done before. Who will win this year? You'll have to come to the meet to find out!
