RUSSELL HUGHES [4min]

Russell Hughes finished 3rd in the 1968 World Championships, but Nat Young thought he should have won. Hughes was a cool customer, always the smoothest-riding dude in the water. Didn't much dig the contest scene, and his '68 result was pretty much it, but the insiders all knew Russ was one of the very best.
