Thanks Kirk!! I'm considering this my best masters meet so far, even if I didn't get to swim my "best" events in it.Originally Posted by knelson
Results from the 2012 National YMCA Masters Championship have been uploaded to the meet results database.
Congrats to James, Elaine and That Guy!!! I don't understand how James does this back-to-back-to-back-to-back event thing ... amazing.
This is a bizarre timing error from Y Nats. Only one 50 year old woman has ever broken 25 (Traci, the NR holder). Maybe they should have checked their results more carefully.

As Allen posted in the breaststroke lane, Megan Jendrick posted some terrific SCM times at the Oregon Association meet: http://www.swimphone.com/mobile/meet...an&ln=Jendrick
But it felt like 5 back to backs!!
The key to my success: Fast food (makes you swim fast, hence the name) and whatever else I can find, 12 oz. sodas at both breaks and lunch at work, and a 44oz. soda on the way home. Oh yeah...and a couple hours of swimming each week in the pool.
I was flat out exhausted. I didn't even know how I was going to complete the 200 Back. IMO, it's the hardest event out there, because you have to use your legs soooo much.
I just went out relaxed, and then somehow held on to it, dropping almost 5 seconds! It's probably mainly that I had no expectations heading in to the race either! A head that can't think is sometimes better than "well prepared" one for a well thought out race.
...plus I knew my daughter was videoing the races too! That gave me incentive to perform for the camera!
I agree that Sheila is a rock star.
Do you agree that times should be accurately reported?
James, having your daughter filming was no doubt a huge incentive!
Here is another record going down by The Fort!
Leslie is in the 4th lane from the bottom and Michelle is 2 above her.

The meet had a lot of relays and at the end of the meet they hand-entered all of the leadoff splits into the computer. Because of the way the meet software works the most efficient way for them to do that was to create separate events, which they called "time trials" in the software (the software does not have a choice for "leadoff split"). I suspect that this was a relay leadoff split. If the relay team swam in a different order from what was printed on the card (or if they had a substitution for the first swimmer) and didn't write it onto the card, then the computer operator wouldn't have known that.
Lesson for everyone: if you swim on a relay and there is a substitution on the team, or if you swim in a different order, PLEASE make sure that the timers cross out the name on the card and write in the correct swimmer's name. Legibly. Your meet director will be eternally grateful.
It may just be a manual keying error of results from the Mixed 25+ 200 Yard Freestyle Relay
