Wiener Stadthallenbad
50 m

ÖHSTM: Tag 2: Rekord- und WM-Limitwelle in Wien

Second day in Wiener Stadthallenbad was quite a rich with records from seasoned veterans. Jukic-family and Dominik Koll were some of the swimmers who re-wrote record books.

In men’s 50 free Martin Spitzer missed Daniel Schmollinger’s eight year old national mark with just three hundreths of a second clocking 23.13. In 400 free David Brandl lost the race and same time lost also his own national record as Dominik Koll triumphed. Koll clocked 3:48.15 for the win and new record, Brandl second with 3:49.73. Dinko Jukic had a quite year in 2008 and now 2009 seems even brighter. Dinko moved his 100 fly national record to new heights with 52.03, quite a drop from 53.32 from last summer. Bernhard Wolf also swam respectable 53.90.

Mirna Jukic equaled her own record in 100 breast with 1:07.06, hitting the end just as in Beijing. Nina Dittrich broke her own national record in 200 bk with a huge margin. She had managed 2:17.02 just last summer and now went 2:14.55 for the win.. Team from ASV Linz swam new record in 4×200 free relay with 8:30.78, shaving almost eights second from the old one.

  • The 41-year old Torres is one of 10 members of the 2008 U.S. Olympic swim team who has signed on to compete March 5-7 at the 2009 Austin Grand Prix, at the University of Texas.

  • The worsening economy is beginning to reveal itself in collegiate athletics. Days after Vermont and Northern Iowa announced the elimination of some sports, George Washington University announces it will discontinue its men's and women's diving programs effective immediately, GW Director of Athletics Jack Kvancz has announced.
  • It finally happened. I have officially lost my mind. Why else would I volunteer to eat 12,000 calories in a single day? The only real reasons I have are my own personal amusement and to have an interesting feature story for the sports section. While writing an entry on my IC blog, “All Sports Considered,” about Michael Phelps, I researched the diet Phelps claimed to eat while training for the Olympics. The diet totals 12,000 calories over three meals. I initially joked about how I could easily handle the diet, then began to seriously consider doing it, and now I am mere hours away from gorging myself like never before.
  • A territory indigenous land council was yesterday locked in secret talks with one of the world's richest men and one of Australia's fastest swimmers.

    The Northern Territory News understands that British billionaire Richard Branson and Olympic gold medallist Ian Thorpe were in meetings yesterday with the Tangentyere Council – the body responsible for Alice Springs' town camps.

  • Yao Zhengjie was named China's national swimming coach. He replaces Zhang Yadong who will serve as the vice-president of a sports academy in Zhejiang province.

  • A little encouragement can sometimes make a big splash. It did for Hartland junior Connely Ellett. Ellett is a three-sport athlete for the Eagles and she is competing as a diver on the boys swim team this winter.
