Still going well at the Long Beach - USA swimming Grand Prix meet. Yesterday we had 12 individual swims, Although only 6 were best times, 5 of the non-bests were within .3 seconds of their previous bests. New Team records were broken in the 500 free - Brandon Lowe 4:36.1, breakind a 3 year old record by Aljaz Ojstersek, and Justin DiFederico in the 200 back,breaking his own CAST and SI record with a 1:50.9.
We were also treated to being able to see a new American record last night in the women’s 200 Fly, When Mary Descenza set her (i think) first American record with a 1:51.2.
