    Long time Terrapin Suzanne Heim was recently nominated to the "Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame" or "BASHOF".  You may see Suzanne practicing with the Senior Group, something she has been doing for over 24 years now, she has the nickname "granny", and has been an important friend and mentor to those coming through the program year after year. 

    Suzanne Heim is a well known open water swimmer: In the 1996 FINA Masters World Championships: silver (3k); 2002, 2004 FINA Masters World Championships: gold (3k);15 Masters US National Championships: 8 (1 hour postal), 4 (5k postal), 1 (10k postal), 1(15k), 1 (1 mile).

    Below is a blurb from Suzanne.

    ~  Embrace the discipline, enjoy the challenges and appreciate the wonderful friendships you will develop in your swimming journey as that has been my experience and still loving it after all these years! Swimming is more than just a sport as the benefits are many:  friendships, travel, great competition, and exciting challenges. Having my name placed on the ballot for the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame for 2017 is an incredible honor.  I have been involved with swimming at so many levels and disciplines both pool and open water:  USA National Team Long Distance Swimming, US Masters Swimming World Records, Marathon Solo Swimming (English Channel et al) and International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame Honor Open Water Swimmer.  I am grateful for the wonderful support I have received and continue to receive from insightful and motivating coaches and dedicated and supportive family, friends, and teammates (Terrapins that means YOU!). Thank You!!  Swimmingly, Suzanne
