VMST Women Set World Record

A quartet of VMST women set a new World Record in the 400 SCM Freestyle Relay in the 280-319 age group.

Members of the Virginia LMSC routinely take advantage of the early opportunity to race in a 25-m pool in the annual Albatross Open meet, which is hosted by the Ancient Mariners masters team in Bethesda, MD. This year was no different! Eleven swimmers from VMST and a couple from Club Tribe participated this year, setting a number of LMSC records:

  • David Nicholas set four records in the 80-84 age group, in the 50/100 free and 50/100 breast
  • John Mccorkle set two records in the 65-69 records in the tough 200 fly and 400 IM events
  • Denise Letendre (30-34) and Ann Lyttle (70-74) each set one record apiece, in the 200 fly and 100 free, respectively

The highlight swims were by the VMST relay quartet of Barbara Boslego, Shirley Loftus-Charley, Ann Lyttle, and Beth Schreiner. They set two new LMSC relay records, in the 200 and 400 free relays. Their time of 5:30.90 in the 400 relay was also a national and world record, beating the old record (also held by VMST) by about nine seconds! Wow, congratulations ladies! And great job to everyone who made the trip.
