Re: Swimming

Busy Year For World Records

06-Aug-2006 Craig Lord


Just four world long-course records, all held by women, survive from the last century in the midst of a busy year for pioneers of the pool: twelve world records have fallen so far this year, ten of them in women's events.

In January:
Melbourne
Libby Lenton (AUS) 53.42 - 100m freestyle
Leisel Jones (AUS) 1:05.71 - 100m breaststroke
Leisel Jones (AUS) 2:20.54 - 200m breaststroke

March
Melbourne
Leisel Jones (AUS) 1:05.09 - 100m breaststroke
AUSTRALIA (Sophie Edington, 1:01.06, Leisel Jones, 1:05.51, Jessica Schipper, 56.86, Libby Lenton, 52.87) 3:56.30 - 4x100m medley

May
Tours
Laure Manaudou (FRA) 4:03.03 - 400m freestyle

August
Budapest
Britta Steffen (GER) 53.30 - 100m freestyle
GERMANY (Petra Dallmann 54.53; Daniela Goetz 53.87; Britta Steffen 52.66 (fastest ever split); Annika Liebs 54.16 - 4x100m freestyle
GERMANY (Petra Dallmann 1:59.14; Daniela Samulski 1:58.27; Britta Steffen 1:57.77; Annika Liebs 1:55.64 (fastest ever split) - 4x200m freestyle
Laure Manaudou (FRA) 4:02.13 - 400m freestyle


Irvine


Brendan Hansen (US) 59.13 - 100m breaststroke
Brendan Hansen (US) 2:08.74 - 200m breaststroke

There was also an equalled world record over 50m backstroke to Aleksandr Herasimenia, the Beloruss backstroker back from a doping suspension, on 28.19 over 50m, a tie with Janine Pietsch of Germany.

And the survivors:
800m freestyle - Janet Evans (US) 8:16.22, Tokyo, Aug 20, 1989
1,500m freestyle - Janet Evans (US) 15:52.10, Orlando, May 26, 1988
200m backstroke - Krisztina Egerszegi (HUN) 2:06.62, Aug 25, 1991
200m medley - Wu Yanyan (CHN) 2:09.72, Oct 17, 1997*

* - before she was suspended for four years after testing positive for an anabolic steroid

Re: Swimming

Hackett High As He Pops The Question

01-Aug-2006 Craig Lord


Grant Hackett, the Olympic champion and world record holder over 1,500m freestyle, is engaged to Australian singer Candice Alley.

The swimmer took his 23-year-old wife-to-be on a hot air balloon ride for her birthday on June 23 and presented the performer with a 4.2-carat diamond and platinum ring, according to reports from Australia.

The couple met when the singer performed at the 2004 Aussie Swimmer of the Year Awards. "I thought the balloon ride was a great idea and I was really impressed he'd gone to so much trouble for my birthday. Then, as we descended over a lake, he pulled out the ring and proposed. It was an amazing moment," Miss Alley told Aussie reporters.

Hackett, 26, said the experience was tougher "than swimming for gold".

Re: Swimming

Hackett is a champion, such a great guy and ambassador for our country.

Suzi, your thoughts on Joanna Fargus? Lovely young lady IMO.

Re: Swimming

Yeh could be something to do with the face...

I much prefer Hackett to Thorpe, Grant is one of my most respected athletes.
