Images from SPLASH! World’s Fastest Swimmer (1908)

Continuing the series of posts from my new book SPLASH!

From Chapter 14: “Growing Pains.”

Another image from the 1908 London Olympics: Dapper Charlie Daniels, newly crowned fastest swimmer in the world after winning the 100-meter freestyle in a record-busting time of 1:05.6. Daniels trained at the New York Athletic Club, where he was also squash and bridge champion.
