    I see the last entry is 1952. Does that mean the Blue Ribbon "contest" or race, don't exist any more...??

        Thats right, the United States still holds the official Blue Ribbon record, even
        if it is from year 1952. She was designed and built for transporting troops, and
        her real speed is still a military secret.
