About a month ago you partici-
pated in the South American
games, how did you do personally
in them?
I won four gold medals - for
the 200 individual medley, the 200
freestyle, the 100 freestyle and
the 100 butterfly. I also wonthree
silver medals and one bronze me-
dal.
How did your. country Peru fin-
ish?
Third overall..
Which south American country is
best overall in swimming?
Brazil
Who is the best South American
swimmer?
I am. Then there's Juilio Aron-
go from Columbia.
How does the competition there
compare to that in the U.S.?
It's pretty even. There are some
good swimmers there. The U.S.
nationally is much tougher. How-
ever, the South Americans since
they swim only for the national
teams can shave down and taper
off for events ii k e the South
American games but those of us
who swim for college teams don't
have this advantage.
How would you compare the
teams of e a c h country - are
those you meet in South America

way below the overall caliber of
Michigan's caliber or are t h e y
about even?
The U.S. is the best. S o u t h
America has only about four
swimmers of the caliber of Amer-
ican collegians. However, no South
American team could place well in
Big 10 or NCAA competition.
When did you start swimming and
where did you find your compe-
tition?
I started at three and joined
age-group teams when I was
eight. When I was 15 I began
swimming with clubs since there
is no swimming in our schools.
Are the crowds and their reac-
tions different for swim meets in
South America?
For one thing the crowds are
larger and they're a lot more in-
volved in the meet. This differ-
ence surprised me a lot when I
came up here. Here the swimming
is better but the people ar6 colder
and it's just the opposite at home.
Did you find it difficult to adjust
to differences in coaching, and
crowds when you came here?
It was hard to adjust. I thought
I w a s God swimming before I
came here and realized I wasn't
what I thought when I arrived.
You swim the individual medley
and almost any other event, do
you consider yourself an all-
arounder?
Yes. I've always tried to swim
everything. Some people can't do
it and I've been lucky that I'm
one who can.
Latin American swimming seem,
to be growing in strength in in-
ternational meets lately, what rea-

as hard and that's what a swim-
mer had to do for long distances.
How do you like the University
and Ann Arbor?
I love Michigan but I should
hate it because of the school work.
I don't like the weather. It's com-
pletely different from what I was
used to.
I love the kind of life I have
here in Ann Arbor, I'm free and I
like being from another country.
What do you intend to do after
graduation?
I'll stay in Los Angeles and train
with Don Jambril. He's my sum-
mer coach with the Phillips 66
team in the AAU. I'd like to stay
here but it's too cold.
How does it feel to be an athlete?
I'm a national hero in Peru.
Everyone knows me. I don't feel
different because I'm an athlete.
I'm the same person inside. You
can't lie to yourself and no matter
what you are in the world, you're
just a person like anyone else to
yourself.
Did you have any trouble adjust-
ing to the U.S. when you first
came here?
I'm not adjusted yet and I'll
never be. I just don't think like
people here. I can adjust to the.
food and weather but not to peo-
ple, that's too hard.

Spring has finally arrived and
as the temperature starts creep-
ing upward (to a balmy 45 de-
grees F) and the last snowflakes
have fallen long ago (almost 36
hours since the last one fell), the
track team moves outside for this
beautiful spring weather.
During the past two weeks, the
Wolverine track squad has been
making the transition between in-
door and outdoor running. To the
casual observer, there d o e s not
seem to be any difficulties in this
transition, but if one looks clos-
er, many changes do appear.
THE FIRST obvious change oc-
curs in the size of the track. Most
indoor tracks are 220 yards long,
or % of a mile long, while an
outdoor track is usually twice as
long - 440 yards. This difference
is important because in running,
curves slow a runner down, and
the sharperccurves of a 220-yard
track produce slower times than
could be run for the same event

on a 440-yard -track. Also, sharp-
er curves put more strain on a
runners ankles, which produces
more injuries in indoor track
compared with outdoor running.
ANOTHER CHANGE Which one
encounters between indoor a n d
outdoor track is weather. Indoors,
the air is motionless and usually
dry (which makes it h a r d to
breathe), but outdoors you have
wind, rain, and better air to
breathe (as long as you stay away
from cars and factories). With the
winds which often occur in spring,
running -outdoors can sometimes
be rather difficult, especially after
being accustomed to having no
wind for the four months of the
indoor season. T h e runners do
eventually adjust to their n e w
running conditions, but it takes
two or three weeks to do so.
A third set of changes which
the track team faces in changing
to the outdoor season occurs in
the events which make up a track
meet. Indoors, you have such
events as the 60, 300, and 600-
yard races which are designed to
take advantage of the straight
stretches of the track as much as
possible. This is not only because
of the tight turns and their phys-
ical effects on the runners, but it
is also because a runner trying
to pass on the curve has to run
quite a lot further than the run-
ner in the first lane who he is
trying to pass.

THEREFORE, the fewer curves
there ate in a race, the more like-
ly it will, be that all the runners
in the race will be running the
same distance.
Outdoors, different events are
run instead of the three mention-
ed above. These are the 100, 220,
and 660-yard races and they are
joined by some other new events.
The discus and javelin are added
to the field events, although the
javelin is not thrown very much
any more due to the dangers it
presents to both participants and
spectators. In the distance events,
the 1000-yard and two-mile runs
are dropped completely and the
three-mile run is added.
TWO OTHER events are also
added to the outdoors program
which aren't run indoors, except
only occasionally. These are the
440--yard relay and the 3000-me-
ter steeplechase, the only event
of track in which a runner can
show off his swimming ability as
well as his running skill at the
same time.
So, if you thought the only dif-
ference between indoor and out-
door track was that one was in-
doors and the other is outdoors,
you now have been properly in-
formed. To see this natural phe-
nomenon for yourself, stop by the
Ferry Field track on April 11 dur-
ing Michigras and see a real carn-
ival.
