In recent years a growing foreign legion of swimmers, as well as trackmen (see page 55), from every continent have been coming to study and compete in the U.S. The four swimmers pictured below are the foremost veterans of this international set. Each competed in the 1952 Olympics for his homeland, won collegiate honors here and will again be on the home team at Melbourne. Anyone obsessed by national rivalry may find it strange, but in competition today what a man clocks is important, and few care where he came from. In fact, while in the U.S. three of the foreigners below—Marshall, Hurring and Wardrop—were voted onto the All-America team.
