Jeanne Newmark, 83, and her daughter Phyllis Newmark, 59, won the gold medal in the duet competition at the U.S. Masters Synchronized Swimming National Championships held Oct. 18-20 in Albuquerque, NM. Teams compete by age group categories determined by the average age of all members of the team. The Newmarks and their Multnomah Athletic Team swim in the age 70-79 category. The Newmarks’ duet routine was choreographed to a song with the Yiddish title “Bei Mir Bistu Shein.” “There was a tremendous outpouring of joy,” Phyllis said. “Everyone had a mother, many were mothers, so they recognized how special it is for us to share this experience.” Next for them and their teammates: the World Synchronized Swimming Competition in Montreal, Canada this August.
