News Flash! Barbara Joins the Record Party

Swimming in the 2008 IGLA Championships at the University of Maryland, Glenn Mills obliterated the world record in the 45-49 age group for the 200 SCM breaststroke in a time of 2.22. Glenn’s time clipped nearly 4 seconds off the old standard of 2:26.17, held by David Guthrie. Also on Friday, Glenn lowered Marco Colombo’s world record for the 200 IM by nearly 2 seconds, with a time of 2:13.8. Today, Glenn continued to rewrite the record books, shaving .7 off Chris Weissman’s global record in the 100 breast, with a time of 1:05.7. We’ll provide more news as the meet progresses. Way to go, G!

Hey… it’s Glenn chiming in here now. Barbara swam to a new National Record in the Long Course 50 breast with a time of :39.63 today. She broke a long-standing record set by Jayne Bruner of 39.91, set it 1991.

Oh yeah… I swam the 50 breast short course meters today, and just nipped the National Record of David G’s by a few 100ths. Which means I just missed the World Record of 30.1. I swam a 30.2.

In talking to Barbara… don’t be surprised if we do something on breaststroke this week. 🙂 Thanks for the support too.
