Sarasota Master Swimmers Set New World Record

sarasota-master-swimmers-set-new-world-record-newA world U.S. Masters Swimming record was set in June by Sarasota master swimmers at the Bumpy Jones Classic Long Course Meet.

The men of the Sarasota Y Sharks Masters 240+ 400 Medley set a new world record of 4:44.34 breaking the old record set by Ventura County Masters of 4:44.58.

Swimming for the Sharks were Steve Newman (1:11.56), Bill Brenner (1:20.08), Jack Groselle (1:06.98) and Rick Walker (1:05.72). The Sharks and Ventura have a recent history of trading off World Records and we can add this one to the mix.
