Biography

Had it not been for the East German great Roland Matthes, Mike Stamm would have won three major international titles; Stamm finished second to Matthes in both of his Olympic races and in the 100m back at the 1973 World Championships. In 1970, however, Stamm did break Matthes' world 200m backstroke record, only to have the East German recapture it three weeks later. Stamm attended Indiana University and won one NCAA and eight AAU individual titles.
