Remembering a Great Lady
Georgia Masters Mourns the passing of Anne Dunivin
By Elaine Krugman
Anne Dunivin died "peacefully and joyfully" on November 10th at age 105. For those of you who didn't know her, she was the sweetest and most positive person you could ever know. She was a role model for all who knew her, and I know I wasn't the only person to tell her, "I want to grow up to be just like you!"
One of my favorite non-swimming memories of Anne was visiting her in the hospital after she had surgery following a chair aerobics injury (the chair slipped, and she fell). She was all smiles; and, according to Virginia, the first question Anne had asked the doctor was, "When I can I get back in the pool?" The other favorite was celebrating her 100th birthday with her, and when I told her she looked great, she replied, "Well, I don't feel like I'm 100; I feel good!"
My all-time favorite swimming memory of Anne was at the 2016 UGA long course meet when she set a record for being the first woman to swim the 200 meter freestyle in the 100-104 age group. USMS had to add that age group to the software!
150 meters into the swim, Virginia was concerned that Anne wouldn't make it and thought I should stop her so nothing bad would happen. We were at the far end of the pool, and I convinced her to let Anne swim, because she was doing great, looked strong, and was doing what she loved to do. When Anne reached the wall for her last turn, she took one look up at us, and with the most determined look I had ever seen, spun around in a quick open turn and headed for home. (It's as if she had known what we were talking about and was determined to prove her wrong!). At the end of her 200, Anne evidently forgot where she was in the race, because she turned around and kept going! At the same time, Mark Rogers and I both leaped in the pool to stop her, so she wouldn't swim another 100 meters! I tapped her on the head and said, "Anne, you are all done! You set the record!" She just smiled and swam back to the edge of the pool. The crowd went nuts; she was a rock star!
Anne, you will be missed!
Virginia and Barbara, our hearts goes out to you and your family.

*******New USMS Insurance Changes*******
A new workout insurance requirement has been put into effect by our insurance carrier. Effective
immediately, for a workout to be covered by USMS insurance, the person supervising the workout must be
a USMS member. In the past, a USA Swimming certified coach was allowed to supervise the workouts,
even if the USA Swimming certified coach was not a USMS member. This is no longer true; now if the
person supervising the workout is a USA Swimming certified coach, he or she must also be a USMS
