Esther Williams

Probably the single largest iconic figure related to swimming died this
week. Esther William aged 91 was a star of swim shows and movies. She
was famous for her synchronized swimming with large groups of swimming
cap adorned women and risque swims with future Tarzan star Johnny
Weissmüller. Esther William later said that she had to teach Johnny to
use his hands to swim instead of putting them all over her. She was so
famous for swimming that a swimming pool company was for named after
her, called Esther Williams. These were above ground aluminum pools of
high quality and sold until about 20 years ago.
So, for her contribution to the swimming industry, which I currently
make my living, here's to you Esther Williams. RIP
