Jeff Commings became the first black gold-medalist swimmer, and two records fell Sunday night as the swimming competition got off to a swift start in the U.S. Olympic Festival at Minneapolis. Commings, who lives in the St. Louis suburb of Black Jack, Mo., easily won the 100-meter breast- stroke in 1 minute 4.34 seconds--the second-fastest time in Festival history. The muscular 16-year-old swimmer beat silver medalist Eric Jones of Bedford, N.H.

The "Deep Six," as they call themselves, are members of the Ventura County Masters swim club. They're 40 to 59 years old, and since dawn Thursday, each has put in a grueling hour at a time in the Pacific Ocean before being hauled onto an accompanying 129-foot charter yacht.
