I have to take a second and give a special shout out to my fellow WaterBlogger, Katie Paglini, for her exceptional performance in a swim meet in Anchorage this past weekend. She is currently ranked number one in the Nation in the 30-34 age group in the 50, 100, and 200 back, 50 Free and 50 Fly!!!
She also became the first female AK masters swimmer to break 1:00 in the 100 back with a final time of :59.11!!!
It is still very early in the year, so anything could happen. Her final times were:
50 Back: 28.04
100 Back: 59.11 (she split 29.29/29.82)
200 Back: 2:09.27
50 Free: 24.86
50 Fly: 26.39
Looking at the 2013 Top ten list for USA Masters Swimming, her 100 and 200 Back time would be enough to stay at #1 in the country. Her 50 Back would put her at #2. Her 50 Free would tie for #8 and her 50 Fly would put her at #2. It will be really neat to see what happens.
I’m so proud of her. She’ll be posting about her experience at the meet and training as soon as she is able.
