Tina Nuckles

Current residence: Jonesboro.

Family and Occupation: Retired accountant married to a retired US Army Desert Storm/Desert Shield Combat Veteran.

Swimming background: I “play” swam in my backyard pool as a child but didn’t get serious about swimming until about 12 years ago. I started water aerobics for exercise for severe arthritis. Before long I felt bored and began swimming laps. Now I swim almost 3 miles, 3 days a week.

Favorite event/race: Go The Distance. I try to beat my own mileage every year.

Swimming goals: If I can get over anxiety, I may want to compete in the Senior Olympics.

Advice to new masters swimmers: Just swim when and where you can. You don’t have to swim with a group. I find peace swimming alone.

Hobbies: We are cat parents and also feed and care for a TNR colony. We also are members of several Great Ape Sanctuaries.

Favorite drill/workout: Swimming laps for as long as I can.

Do you participate in other sports? I walk 3 miles 3 days a week. When I was young….I was a cheerleader and active in gymnastics.

Where do you currently swim? Trim Gym. Jonesboro, Ar
