Jim Montgomery, Founder, Jim Montgomery Swim School & Dallas Aquatic Masters

unnamed

Jim Montgomery, an Olympic gold medalist and the founder and owner of Dallas Aquatic Masters Swim Club, was the first man ever to break 50 seconds in the 100-meter freestyle in the 1976 Montreal Olympic games. Breaking this barrier was equivalent to Roger Bannister’s breaking the four-minute mile in track.

Jim won two more golds and a bronze in the 1976 Olympics and won a record five golds in the first World Championships at Belgrade in 1973 and repeated with four golds, a silver and a bronze in 1975 and 1978.

After his retirement from college and USA swimming Jim went on to win 14 Masters World Championships from 1986 to 2002. Jim began competing in ocean races in the 1980s and in 1986 won the 2.4-mile Waikiki Roughwater Swim. Jim also co-authored “Mastering Swimming – Faster Swimming for the Master’s Athlete,” and developed the Masters swim concept for adults.
