11 Masters World Records for the nero

In Tempe, Arizona, at the second annual Ron Johnson Invitational short course meters meet, seven swimmers
swam faster than 14 Masters world record times at the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center. Two relays also swam under existing world marks. 11 of these world records were broken by swimmer's wearing the nero comp swimskin.

blueseventy's very own Roque Santos, a 1992 Olympian in the 200 breast representing Walnut Creek Masters, walked away from the meet with four new swims under world record time in the 40-44 age group: 100 breast (1:03.54), 100 IM (58.94), 200 IM (2:07.94) and 400 IM (4:32.05). His times in the 100 breast, 100 IM and 200 IM dipped under the records by less than three tenths each.

On the other side of the coin, Santos, 40, was just two-hundredths of a second slower than Wolfgang Jarmer's world record of 29.49 in the 50 breast with a 29.51. He also missed Alberto Montini's 200 breast record of 2:18.16 when he swam a 2:18.59.
