Swimming Career Highlights

Really competitive swimmers are never satisfied, but I've had some pretty good races during my career. I started out as a YMCA age-group club swimmer. Below are a few races that stand out in my mind. There have been many memorable team, relay and individual events.

Beijing Olympics Gold medal and WR in 400 freestyle relay; Gold medal in 400 medley relay.

2008 US Olympic Trials 50 and 100 Freestlyes, first place with American Record of 21.47 in the 50 and a time of 47.92 in the 100. (47.78 AR in prelims. First American to break 48.)

2008 American Long Course Championships LCM 50, 100 and 200 at 21.93, 48.50 and 1:49.06 respectively.

US National Team World Championship, Melbourne, Australia 4 X 100 Relay in 2007: 49.40.

NCAA Division I Champion SCY 100 Freestyle in 2006: 42.11. (My best is 41.94.)

US National Team World Championship, Montreal, Canada 4 X 100 Relay in 2005: 49.44.

World Record 400 SCM Medley Relay in 2004: 3:25.38.

Best Short Course Meter times are 21. 31 in the 50 and 46.29 in the 100.

National Public High School Record SCY 100 Freestyle in 2003: 43.49.
I've never swum the perfect race, there's always room for improvement.

 

My parents threw me into the deep end.  Came up smiling.
