Next meet is the Austin Grand Prix

Today I learned that my SCM 100 IM WR got broken a week later by 1/100th of a second. I went 1:00.14, Edwin Van Norden from the Netherlands went 1:00.13. Had I known this when I was at Long Beach I'm pretty sure I would have done things differently, I just swam for a win and went for High Point. Now I know I should have rested up and given my best effort in the 100 IM to see if I could improve my 1:00.14. you can look up records at:
http://www.fina.org/database/main/records.php

Also Fritz Bedford broke my 24.18 50 SCM free record with a 23.80. Way to go.

So for now I think I still have the
100 SCM IM NR & the
200 IM SCM & SCY NRs
Records just make it a little harder for the next guy or gal to come along and break

    Ande -

    Bummer about the IM record. Trivia fact - I swam with Edwin in Holland in the mid 1980s for the Amersfoortse Zwem en Polo Club (AZPC). Lots of good swimmers came out of that club in those days.
