Superb swim by Ellie Simmonds in the 400FR breaking her own Paraswimming Short-Course World Record (set in 2013) with a time of 5:26.76 – superb effort in Ellie’s return to @AquaticsCentre . Congratutations!!! #2018LondonWinters
That is what make being an official worthwhile, it is the knowledge that we can facilitate and assist greatness in the pool.
I am just about intrigued to read via Swimvortex that the World Record of Adam Peaty is in doubt, due to a time measuring adjustment. LEN does confirm this statement. Whether is plus or minus 0.10 seconds, there is no doubt that Adam Peaty was well ahead of all his competitors.
They also doubt that Peaty could have had a reaction time of 0.47. That is information via their Facebook page, yet when I go to their main website a message appears that they stop the coverage of swimming and offer refunds to paid up members. There is no date on the page. How much sense does that all make. Either you suspend swimming coverage or you don’t.
Madison had a reaction time of 0.02 during her latest 50 freestyle PB at the London Aquatic Centre. It happens to the best of us.
