New NAA Record Holders

swimming_iconJust when you think the laws of physics make it impossible to go any faster, an athlete comes along to prove you wrong.  Now that the Big Meet is in the books, we’ve updated our records.

Neal McComb’s 9-10 backstroke record of 38.40 had been with us for 31 years.  (Yes, you read that right… 31 years!)  It was the longest standing swimming record in the NAA (until Saturday).  Neal set the record in 1984 while with Westminster and would go on to be involved with the NAA for years afterwards.  Glen Omielan of Walters finally broke Neal’s record at the big meet with a blistering 37.72.  Hopefully Glen’s record will stand for another 3 decades.  Congratulations Glen!

Glen was also tearing up the pool in butterfly as he eclipsed Julien Alie of Elm Park’s 2000 record of 16.09 with a time of 15.82.

Also in butterfly, Elsa Yazedjian of TMR blew past Maggie Robertson of Glenmore’s 2012 8 and under record of 18.72 with a new record time of 18.47.  Great work Elsa.
