Mountain View Masters Results

The Olympic Club 1500 Short Course Meters Swim

Saturday 1/15/11
The Olympic Club  San Francisco

Here are the results from a very good day up at The Olympic Club Short Course Meters 1500 on Saturday 1/15/11 in San Francisco.  Karla Rees and Jack Sorg won their divisions for Team MVM, while Coach Bob Stenz, swimming under the Stanford Masters banner, also won his.  Bob was also the Pacing Machine,  negative splitting his race by 0.04 seconds.  Mike Kadi and Kate Latham both finished 2nd in their divisions, while Mary Leigh Burke took almost 5 minutes off of her best time and finished 3rd, and Coach Chris Campbell came home in 4th.  Both Kate and Jack broke their own existing Team Records in the 1500, and their intermediate 800m splits were also Team Records.

The FINA rule that states that swimmers’ age groups for meters meets are determined by their ages at the end of the year had an interesting effect.  Jack swam in the 55-59 age group, while Chris and Bob swam in the 50-54, all before our respective birthdays.  Laura Val of Tamalpais Aquatic Masters took unique advantage of her FINA-forced age up into the 60-64 age group by breaking the existing World Records in the W60-64 age group in the 50, 100, 200, 400 , 800 and 1500m Freestyles…IN A SINGLE SWIM!  Count them.  That’s 6 New World Records in a single swim.

Way to go, Team MVM!
