Cielo!

So maybe what you want to say (about swimming) doesn't quite fit into one of our other categories. This is the place for you.

It's sad when Stand ford has their final two legs go 19.0 and not come close to Auburn...

Ben Wildman-Tobriner rebreaks the American Record as well

I don't really know what to say about that swim. 1:14.7 is just amazing. We had 4 swims break 19 flat start today. What a battle that will be in the open race.

I think any time you go under 1:17 you are moving pretty good. We had 2 teams under 1:16. Arizona, Texas, and Northwestern were all under 1:17. Crazy fast.

Nothing like a ridiculously fast D1 meet to help you put your own athletic accomplishments in perspective.

Also, I think it is safe to say the 50 is evolving in all divisions. This will make the rest of the meet really interesting to watch.

I know, it is nuts to think that Kenyon won the 200 FR in 1:21.5 and they would have lost to AUburn by almost 7 seconds. Jesus.

I'm fairly sure that Paul Kornfeld of Stanford split even faster. I was standing behind the Stanford Parents and I think they said something like 51.12. I had expected Alexandrov to pull away and was surprised when he didn't. Of course that was a DQ start aided split, but it should be a great 100 breast tonight.

One way or another, I'm expecting to see several 10 year old Jeremy Linn records go down today.
Also, Kornfeld must feel like he has his relay start timing down. He had an RT of .06 in prelims before the -.04 last night. It will be interesting to see how conservative he is in the 200 Medly.

Yeah he needs to be more careful. ANy chance we see 23.2 out of both of those guys in the 50 breast in the 2 medley? Alexandrov was out in 23.4 last night.

I'm really looking forward to the 200 medley relay tonight. It's always intersting to see the strokers in the 50 since they don't train for that a whole lot. I wouldn't be surprised to see Auburn take the lead in the last 10 yards.
