    Indy Nationals Discussion Thread

    The meet is now underway! Awesome swim by Tom Patterson in the 400 IM. He won the 30-34 age group with a 5:16.48, almost 17 seconds under his seed time. Congrats!

    Leslie broke 30 seconds in the 50 fly to finish third with a 29.74! Strong swim by Dana Burkart, too, also finishing third in her age group and demolishing her seed time.

    Leslie was only .22 off the World record too. But a new world record set at Nationals for her age group (18-24 iirc).

    Awesome job Leslie. 50M is a long way to swim fly without a wall to hang on in the middle.

    Gary Hall Sr. just set a world record in the 55-59 50 fly: 26.86. It was mine so I was watching. When an Olympian of his stature breaks your record it's not so bad. I feel honored but would of course like to get it back! Obviously he is swimming fast and I am waiting to see him go after the record in the 100 fly as well.

    Congrats Gary! It's great that you and other Olympians swim in our meets.

    I had a better time in my 400 IM than Olympic Gold Medalist Claudia Poll. .

    It is weird that Gary was a very diverse swimmer and yet, his son is a drop dead sprinter.

    Andrea Kremer: "Paul, Michael Ross just broke your nine year old world record in the men's 40-44 50 meter fly. How do you feel about that? Do you think it was the suit?"

    I hope Andrea Kremer knows more about football than she does about swimming.

    Show's how "soft" that record was to have lasted that long and a great swim by him...but even being 10 years his senior I'd love a head to head race with Michael in that event in any suit.

    Just saw this cross my screen as the latest completed heat:
    1 Switzer, Keith M 46 BLU 2:04.00 1:57.89
    28.11 58.03 (29.92)
    1:27.79 (29.76) 1:57.89 (30.10)
    2 Stevenson, Chris L 45 VMST 2:01.40 2:01.76
    28.30 59.36 (31.06)
    1:30.42 (31.06) 2:01.76 (31.34)

    edit: Jeff "Muppet" Strahota dropped a bomb with a 2:07 mid 200 free. His seed time was a 2:18!

    I heard that Steven Lundquist is like 300 lbs and doesn't swim. A friend of mine told me that he was ripped and huge beyond belief back in '84.

    He's more like 270 lbs. now. Here's the interview I did with him last week:

    I trained with Lunk in Austin before the 84 olympic trials. He was lean and strong, super nice guy, bit a partier

    he made the 84 olympic team in the 100 br, 100 fl & 200 IM
    1:02, :54, & 2:03

    I ran into him in boston 12 - 15 years ago, he did a celebrity appearance at an open water event

    he used to like to win every swim in practice, even warm up, I remember one LCM practice where we did a 200 IM in warm up, he wasn't too happy with me when I went around 2:30.

    he broke a lot of swimming barriers and was quite a versitile swim meet. Think he had a falling out with the SMU coach which caused him to move to Austin to train.

    Another time when he was in Dallas, he let me stay with him when I brought a date to the cotton bowl.
