United States Masters Swimmer Ed Tsuzuki recieved the 2018 Captain Ransom J Arthur Award from United States Masters Swimming in recognition of his tireless volunteer work. The award goes annually to the volunteer who has done the most to further the objectives of Masters Swimming.
A recent article in "Swimmer" (Kristina Henry) noted’ “Ed doesn’t sit still”. Now retired from Johnson & Johnson, Ed indulges in his favourite hobbies of swimming, coaching swimming and volunteering for swimming among others. Although a self-described "late starter" to swimming Ed has swum over 4000 miles in his 25 years of Masters Swimming.
Ed is a regular at the Barbados Open Water Festival (BOWF) along with other members of the Tsuzuki clan! Pictured above with regulars Susan Kirk and Sarah Clark (known as the Jersey Girls!) and Eney Jones. At left finishing a race and below one of several podium finishes!
