blueseventy's world record tally upped to five!

Wearing a blueseventy nero, Randall Bal (pictured below) of the United States set a world record in the 50-meter backstroke on the last day of a short-course swimming FINA World Cup meet in Berlin.
Bal broke the four-day-old record with a time of 22.87 seconds, beating Peter Marshall by 0.03. Marshall, also from the United States, set the record of 23.05 on Wednesday in Stockholm.

Also unsponsored by blueseventy, but wearing a nero comp for the first time, Australia’s Marieke Guehrer (below) ended her 2008 FINA World Cup series with a bang as she clipped the women’s 50 fly world record at the Berlin stop.Guehrer registered a global standard time of 24.99, eclipsing the 25.31 set by Sweden’s Therese Alshammar at the Stockholm stop earlier this week.

The two world records achieved in Berlin brings blueseventy’s world record tally to a total of five!
