Adolph Kiefer
Three Year Anniversary of Adolph Kiefer Passing

Three years ago, today, May 5, 2017, the Swimming Great, Adolph Kiefer passed away. As his grandson Robin said back then, "Departed for the great swimming pool in the sky!"

Before Rowdy Gaines, there was Adolph Keifer, one of the greatest ambassadors swimming has ever known.....

Adolph Kiefer was the first man in the world to swim 100 yds. backstroke under 1 minute. His backstroke records stood for 15 years, which is why swimming people universally acclaim him the greatest backstroker ever.
