Record Alert 50 Free


Jul. 08, 2019

Daniel Boguski’s PB Friday night broke both 15-17 & Senior records in 50 Free.

Boys 15-17                                     
       
50 Free 05-Jul-19       Daniel Boguski  SEALS   23.33  
Senior Male                                    
       
50 Free 05-Jul-19       Daniel Boguski  SEALS   23.33  

In both categories, Daniel now has 3 consecutive lines & is a second and a third under predecessor Riley Janes from 1998.

Unusually, I am actually at a loss for words when I contemplate the pages for these events from the Swim Manitoba Records Book.

I’ve extracted & pasted the chronologies below.  See for yourselves:

·       The “SJS” club was the St James Seals with the fewer-characters ID of those long-ago times.  65 years later the record has returned to & is firmly held by the same club.

·       The names of the record-holders over the years constitute a minor who’s-who listing of Manitoba male swimmers.

o       Todd MacNeil became an Executive Director of Swim Manitoba for some years.

o       Riley Janes was a slightly controversial import from Saskatchewan, with the short-lived Canadian Kodiak club under (very) high performance coach Kevin Thorburn.

o       Thinking Olympians, rest your eyes on the lines for Brian Phillips, Stephen Badger, Vlastimil Cerny & Marcel Gery.

o       Look again at Cerny, first Manitoban ever under 24 seconds for 50 meters no-turn.

o       And now here’s Daniel Boguski at 23 low.  The fastest 50 ever in Manitoba was & is the fire-in-water 22.22 by Fernando Scherer at the ’99 Pan Am Games.  ‘Twas a Pan-American (not the meet, the region) record; I was there, I recall it was lane 5 & Mr Scherer should now be looking over his shoulder…

There, that cured the wordage block.

 Congratulations all.
