Except that USA looks like it's been written in with typewriter correction fluid.

Maybe he wasn't part of the official USA team.

He looks quite like the photo of Peppo Biscarini I found :

...so maybe Alun got it right.

Yep - It's Peppo. Finswimming chap.

The head picture is part of a bigger one - it is worth seeing the larger one - very, very macho - made me laugh.

:D

He was part of the USA team.

This was before DSV became famous!

:t

It has changed considerably since then I think the only remaining member of that team still competing is SCott Campbell. Glennon was actually competing back then too....
