Atkinson Goes For Medal On Monday; Bootsma Wins On Day Two Of Pan American Games

Atkinson Goes For Medal On Monday; Bootsma Wins On Day Two Of Pan American Games


October 16, 2011

WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

It was the Elizabeth Pelton-Rachel Bootsma Show in the 100-meter backstroke Sunday at the XVI Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

In morning prelims, Pelton broke the third oldest Pan American Games record in 1:01.57. The previous record was 1:01.71 set by Barbara (B.J.) Bedford in 1995.

Bootsma, 17, the National High School Swimmer of the Year and high school record holder from Minneapolis, won the championship final in 1:00.37 breaking the record again. Her splits were 29.56 and 30.81.

Pelton finished second for the silver medal in 1:01.12 to give the U.S. a 1-2 finish.

In other championship finals:

Brazil Olympic and world champion Cesar Cielo broke the Pan American Games record in the 100-meter freestyle in a career-best 47.84, second fastest time in the world this year. Cielo broke his own record of 48.79 set in 2007. Cielo’s splits were 22.84 and 25.00.

The U.S. had another 1-2 finish in the 200-meter freestyle. Catherine Breed won the gold medal in 2:00.08 and Tampa Prep alum Chelsea Nauta took the silver in 2:00.62.

Brazil’s Felipe Franca won the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:00.34, just missing the meet record of 1:00.24. 

Brazil won another gold medal in the men’s 400-meter freestyle relay to finish ahead of the U.S. with another Pan American Games record in 3:14.65. Bruno Fratus, who has tonsillitis and failed to final in the 100 freestyle (50.51), came back on leadoff leg for a 49.7.

SOFLO two-time Olympian Alia Atkinson of Jamaica, fresh off her back-to-back national records and career-bests in the 100-meter butterfly on Saturday, will go after her first medal on Monday in the 100-meter breaststroke.

Atkinson broke her own national record of 1:02.40 set four years ago at the last Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro.

SOFLO and Jamaica coach Chris Anderson said her first swim will help her confidence and set her up nicely for her main events, the breaststrokes.

“I was nervous because it was the first of the meet, but it went well,” Atkinson said. “Main problem is that it was the first event in the morning and the last five meters hurt a lot. Considering how the first one went, the two breaststrokes should be pretty good.”

SOFLO’s Arlene Semeco swam anchor leg on Venezuela’s fourth place 4×100-meter freestyle relay that finished in 3:48.55.

FINA/ARENA WORLD CUP SERIES

South African teenager Chad Le Clos added another $7,000 on Sunday bringing his series-leading prize money total to $16,000 after finishing second in three events on the final day of competition in Stockholm, Sweden, the second stop on the tour.

Le Clos was second in the 200-meter freestyle in 1:43.80. Germany’s Paul Biedermann won in 1:43.44. He was also second in the 100-meter butterfly in 51.15 and 200-meter individual medley in 1:54.93.
