Kate Ledecky, 14 of Curl-Burke, broke 2 13-14 NAG yards records at the
5th Annual National Age Group Team Challenge held at the Germantown Indoor Swim Center Nov 12-13.

Katie has OT cuts in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 free & will definitely be one to watch at trials.

Wow those are some fast times for a 14 year old girl!!!! 4:35 500 free is very fast 55/100 ave. Nice!! Her splitting is also very impressive. Remove the first 20% of the race in both the 1,000 and 500 she descends by 100!
A few more National Age Group Records this past week-end:
11-12 Boys SCY
50 Free Andrew, Michael C 12 UN-MV 21.85
50 Breast Andrew, Michael C 12 UN-MV 28.24
50 Fly Andrew, Michael C 12 UN-MV 24.05
He is from South Africa my native homeland
There were 4 USMS National Records at the ATT Nationals and they were discussed on that thread.
Wow, a Sippy Woodhead NAG record falls. I figured it would never happen.
Can we do masters?
Andrea Block broke two SCM NRs at Long Beach this weekend in the 50-54 age group. 100 fly 1:08.6 (old Laura Val record) and 200 fly 2:33.+
Any other records broken at LB? I'm sure there must be.
RE Long Beach, Bob Strand took down the world records in the 100 breast (barely) and 200 breast (demolished). He seeded a 1:09.50 for the 100 IM which is under the world record (mine, BTW) but I don't know the results as that was the only event not posted in the results. He's ignoring my calls!
Bob had a major operation this summer. His performances at Long Beach are truely remarkable.
Diann Uustal clobbered the WR in W65-69 200 SCM back this weekend at the South Carolina Championships meet in Columbia, SC*, posting a 2:53 & change**, versus the old mark of 2:55.02, by Margit Ohlsson of Sweden, which was set just this October 1st. Diann narrowly missed WRs in three other events, missing the mark in the 200 free by only 0.04***.
Diann and Margit Ohlsson have quite a duel going on, which should thrill all fans of the sport: They have traded WRs in the 50, 100 & 200 back several times. I don't think this happens all too often in masters swimming, but it is an epic battle and fun to watch! Here is what the world record progressions will look like shortly:
[65-69]50m Backstroke Women Short Course
OHLSSON Margit SWE 36.58 21-03-2010
UUSTAL Diann USA 35.58 19-03-2011
[65-69]100m Backstroke Women Short Course
OHLSSON Margit SWE 01:20.34 21-03-2010
UUSTAL Diann USA 01:19.08 19-03-2011
OHLSSON Margit SWE 01:18.81 30-09-2011
[65-69]200m Backstroke Women Short Course
OHLSSON Margit SWE 02:56.81 20-03-2010
UUSTAL Diann USA 02:56.03 19-03-2011
OHLSSON Margit SWE 02:55.02 01-10-2011
UUSTAL Diann USA 02:53.?? 04-12-2011
Diann will be swimming the 100 back in the NE championships meet this week. Everybody cheer her on!!! Go USA!!!
*The pool in Columbia, SC is surprisingly fast! If you can go, you should go!
**Sorry, I didn't write down the 10ths, & results are not yet posted online.
***Diann also set a new WR of 1:10.76 in the W65-69 100 SCM freestyle a couple of weeks ago in Sarasota!
The South Carolina SCM meet is a really good meet. The pool is great and it is very well run.
thanks, i'm here all week, try the veal
