McAllister sets America's record at Paralympics

Zack McAllister swam his first event at the Paralympics today - 400 m Freestyle S8.  Not only did he take off approximately 10 seconds from his best time, between his preliminary and final race, placing 6th in finals, but he set a new America's record with a time of 4:39.81. In the preliminaries, a swimmer from Brazil had just set a new America's record with a time of 4:41.20 but in the finals, McAllister bettered that.

Zack's next event is 50 m Freestyle on September 3.
