Janet Latham – “I was encouraged to swim at a very young age. I was allowed to take lots of swimming lessons at the YWCA & Sportsman’s Country Club in Oklahoma City I started swimming with the Kerr McGee swim team when I was 13, and competing in the Senior Games once I turned 50. I enjoy competing with swimmers from all over Oklahoma and it’s extra fun when swimmers come from other states. Last summer the Senior Games was my first time to compete in Water Walking.”
