WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

Floridian Ryan Lochte, Michael Phelps, Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Franklin, all gold medalists at the recent world championships, head the 2011-2012 USA Swimming National Team announced on Tuesday by the sport’s national governing body.

The roster features 109 of the nation’s top swimmers.

Lochte made the team in five events, the most events of any swimmer named to the roster. Phelps, Franklin and Beisel made it in four events.

Two-time Olympian Brendan Hansen, in the midst of a comeback, was named to the national team for the first time since the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The open water national team includes Alex Meyer, Eva Fabian, Sean Ryan and Christine Jennings.

Swimmers were selected to the senior national team based on times in Olympic events at worlds, nationals and World University Games. The open water team was based on results from the national 10K held in Fort Lauderdale and world championship trials.

Lauren Driscoll of American Heritage and Fort Lauderdale Aquatics and Chelsea Britt of Orlando Boone and FLA were the only Florida Gold Coast swimmers on the 2011-2012 National Youth Team roster.

Athletes eligible for the junior team had to be under 18 at the start date of the qualifying competition. The athletes with the top six times in Olympic events from the results of the 2011 ConocoPhillips National Championships were named to the team.

Driscoll, a two-time high school state champion and state record holder, is being recruited by several top collegiate swim programs including Georgia, California and Southern California. Driscoll made the team in the 400-meter individual medley (4:45.25).

Britt, who lives in Orlando, qualified in the 200-meter butterfly (2:14.98). Britt was a state high school record holder and state champion at Lake Highland Prep before transferring this year to Orlando Boone. Britt, a junior, will compete in 3A competition.

Both complete national team rosters are available at usaswimming.org.

South African teammates Charl Crous won the 50-meter backstroke in 26.06 and Cameron van der Burgh won the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:02.44. Van Der Burgh also won the 50-meter breaststroke in 27.81.

Kirsty Coventry of Zimbabwe won the 400-meter individual medley in 4:44.34. South Africa’s Chad Le Clos won the men’s 400-meter individual medley in 4:16.88.

Jason Dunford of Kenya won the 100-meter butterfly in a meet record 52.13.

Farida Osman of Egypt swam back-to-back meet records to win the 50-meter butterfly in 27.08 bettering her own qualifying time of 27.24.

Ahmed Mathlouthi of Tunisia won the 800-meter freestyle in 8:10.00 just ahead of South African Mark Randall in 8:10.04.

Serbia Wins Gold

Serbia topped a field of 20 top junior boys teams including the United States to win the gold medal at the FINA World Junior Men’s Water Polo Championships in Volos, Greece.

After losing to Spain, 6-5 in prelims, Serbia topped Spain, 9-6, in the championship final. Greece took the bronze medal with a 7-5 win over Australia. The U.S. finished ninth.

AQUATIC NOTEBOOK, Issue 51: SOFLO Swimmers Win Eight Gold Medals At Gulf Championships; Kuczynski Heads To China


August 6, 2011

WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

South Florida Aquatic Club swimmers, representing Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, collected eight gold medals at the recent Gulf Aquatic Long Course Championships at the Hamad Aquatic Complex in Kuwait.

Zain Qali of Kuwait won the 50-meter butterfly in a meet record 25.35. He also took a silver medal in the 50-meter freestyle in 24.30 and bronze medal in the 100-meter butterfly in 57.56.

Abbas Qali took a gold medal in the 100-meter freestyle in 53.23, silver medals in the 50-meter butterfly (25.69) and 100-meter butterfly (57.50) and was a member of both winning relays.

Jaafar Bouland won the gold medal in the 200-meter butterfly by 6/100ths of a second in 2:16.76, took silver in the 400-meter freestyle in 4:19.44 and was fourth in the 1500-meter freestyle in 17:58.05.

Short Course Record Swims In South Africa

Gerhard Zandberg, Jurie Wilken, Nico Meyer and Roland Schoeman set a South African short course record in the men’s 4×100-meter freestyle relay at the National Championships in Johannesburg.

Schoeman, coming off a disappointing world championships, swam the anchor leg (fastest split of 47.98) and clinched the short course record in 3:19.45, bettering the previous record by 0.77 seconds. The other splits were 49.81, 50.89 and 50.89.

Because of the high altitude several top South African swimmers are not competing at the four-day championships.

SOFLO’s Kuczynski Heads To China

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Caroline Kuczynski is headed to Shenzhen, China for the Aug. 12-23 World University Games.

The Montreal, Canada-born Arizona State swimmer is one of 42 swimmers who will represent Canada.

Kuczynski, 20, qualified for the WUGs at the 2011 World Trials in Victoria, British Columbia where she won her first medal at a major international meet where she took a bronze medal in the 50-meter butterfly (27.27).

The WUGs are held every two years. It’s an international multi-sport event organized for college athletes by the International Sports Federation. The swimming events are Aug. 14-19.

Lochte To Appear In Miami

Olympian Ryan Lochte, fresh off his five gold medal performance at the World Championships and establishing himself as the swimmer to beat at the 2012 London Olympics, will appear at the new Sports Authority in midtown Miami on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 4 p.m. The sporting goods giant officially opened on Aug. 5. The 35,000-square foot store is located in the Shops at Midtown at NE 34th St. and North Miami Ave.

Rookie Makes U.S. Olympic Women’s Triathlon Team

Less than two years after competing in her first triathlon, Gwen Jorgensen of Milwaukee placed second to post the best finish by an American woman in the history of the International Triathlon Union World Championship Series and earned a spot on the 2012 U.S. Olympic triathlon team on Saturday at Hyde Park in London.

American Sarah Groff of Hanover, N.H. also earned an Olympic berth with a seventh-place finish.

In only her third career World Championship Series start, Jorgensen finished the Olympic-distance course in 2 hours and 41 seconds, just seven seconds out of first place. She earned $13,000 in prize money. Jorgensen had the fastest run split of 33:43 for the 10K. Groff finished in 2:00.58.

The race was held on the same course as next year’s Olympics.

2008 Olympians Laura Reback Bennett, who grew up swimming in the Florida Gold Coast, and Sarah Haskins finished 24th and 34th respectively.

Bennett finished in 2:02:19 and Haskins in 2:02:45. “The body just didn’t show up today, bad timing,” Bennett said.

Jorgensen, 25, is a former standout runner and swimmer at University of Wisconsin and is only a second-year triathlete. She got her elite pro license in her first triathlon in March, 2010.

“You just go out there every day and you learn from each race,” said Jorgensen, who was introduced to the sport by 2004 U.S. Olympian and former Pine Crest swimmer Barb Metz Lindquist, who is in charge of USA Triathlon’s Collegiate Recruitment Program.

“The USA athletes and coaches have been helping me and teaching me the ropes,” Jorgensen said. “I’m just taking what I learn.”

The men’s race is Sunday at 8 a.m. and features Miami’s Manny Huerta,  grew up in South Florida and ran cross country at Florida Atlantic University and swam at the FAU pool.  A top nine finish will put Huerta on the U.S. roster along with Jorgensen and Groff.

SOFLO’s Emily Kopas Swims Career-Best, Gets Second U.S. Olympic Trials Cut At Senior Nationals

SOFLO’s Emily Kopas Swims Career-Best, Gets Second U.S. Olympic Trials Cut At Senior Nationals


August 4, 2011

WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

Emily Kopas added another U.S. Olympic trials cut to her swimming resume Thursday at the ConocoPhillips National Championships at Stanford University’s Avery Aquatic Center in Palo Alto, Calif.

Kopas, 15, one of the youngest swimmers in the meet, went a career-best 1:11.89 in her 100-meter breaststroke morning heat, well under the U.S. Olympic trial cut of 1:12.19. Her previous best was 1:12.70.

“I really wanted to get it,” said Kopas, competing in her second senior national meet. “That was my main goal. I think I swam really well. I went out fast and died.”

After she touched the wall, when glanced up at the scoreboard, Kopas admitted she looked at the wrong lane and her heart sank when she saw the time.

“I actually looked at the wrong lane and saw 1:13 and got upset at that,” Kopas said. “Then I looked at the right lane and was so excited.

“Being at my second seniors I feel a lot more comfortable now. I think of it as just another meet, but it’s not. It’s really cool to be here.”

A year ago, if someone had told Kopas she would have two U.S. Olympic trials cut times by age 15, she admitted she may have looked twice at that person.

“I wouldn’t have believed it,” Kopas said. “I think I have a lot more confidence. I am really happy. I was so excited afterwards. I called my mom, she was so proud and excited and so jealous because my dad is here.”

Kopas was fourth in her heat and 46th overall among a field of 160.

“I didn’t know how fast she could go,” SOFLO coach Bruno Darzi said. “This is the meet we trained for. It was a good race but I still feel there is room for improvement and she can swim faster. I am very happy for her. This is something she wanted to do. Mission accomplished. Now we have to get ready for the 200 breaststroke.”

Kopas already has her Olympic cut in the 200-meter breaststroke (2:33.84) which she swims on Saturday.”I want to make finals, that’s my goal,” Kopas said.

Kopas was ranked No. 1 in the nation in both breaststroke events for 14-year-olds in USA Swimming’s National Age Group Recognition Program, an awards program for the top level age group swimmers.

SOFLO’s Dana Hatic, 21, of the University of Miami won her 100-meter breaststroke heat and also came close to the U.S. Olympic cut, finishing in 1:12.76. Hatic led after the turn (34.16), raced well and held off Athena Liao of Champaign City, Ill.

Indiana University’s Brittney Phelan, 19, who grew up training with Hatic, Coral Springs Swim Club and six-time Olympic coach Michael Lohberg, was in Hatic’s heat and finished third in 1:13.77.

University of Miami swimmer Kelsi Hall, 21, who qualified for the “B” final, was 18th in the 50-meter freestyle in 25.88, slower than her morning time of 25.76. Hall, a senior, transferred from Kentucky before the 2010-11 season.

Former University of Miami swimmer Annika Saarnak, 22, of California Aquatics finished the 50-meter freestyle in 27.66.

Other SOFLO finishers on Wednesday were:

100-meter breaststroke: 39. Alia Atkinson, 22, 1:11.66; 78. Lindsey McKnight, 1:12.71; 50-meter freestyle: 80. Tiffany OIiver, 18, 26.60; 400-meter individual medley: 58. Julie Stupp, 25, 4:55.27.

Olympic and world champion Ryan Lochte of Daytona Beach, who won five gold medals at the world championships in Shanghai, withdrew from the remainder of the meet citing fatigue and exhaustion.

“I didn’t know travelling across the world and getting right into the pool would affect me that much and it definitely did,” Lochte said. “I did everything I could. I’m running on ‘E’ right now and my coach knows it. To swim at the level I did 18 times at worlds, which is such a different environment than this, it’s hard to get refocused.”

Lochte celebrated his 27th birthday at a nearby Cheesecake Factory and plans to devote the remainder of the week to practice and next week to a training camp in Colorado.

Several top swimmers coming off worlds skipped this week’s nationals including Michael Phelps, Rebecca Soni and Natalie Coughlin, who said she is catching up on gardening.

In the championship finals:

Women’s 100-meter breaststroke: Two-time world champion Jessica Hardy, 24, of Trojan Swim Club, coming off world championships and shaking off jet lag, took it out fast (31.04) and held off Ann Chandler of Tucson Ford to win by 36/100ths of a second in 1:06.81, sixth fastest time in the world this year. It was her second long course national title in the same pool. “I know that I hurt really bad, coming off jet lag, I am struggling really bad,” Hardy said. “I am excited for next year. I have a lot to continue on improving.”

Women’s 400-meter individual medley: In a similar scenario to her world championships victory, Elizabeth Beisel of the Gators Swim Club pulled away on the breaststroke leg and dominated the race to win the national title in 4:34.78, nearly a two-body length victory and fourth best time in the world this year. It was her second 400 IM national title. “I am really tired, I just swam it five days ago (in China), it’s pretty mentally tough to turn around and do it twice more,” Beisel said. “It’s really cool to get another national title. It was so tiring, glad it’s over with. I am swimming well. I am glad all the hard work is paying off.” Lauren Driscoll, 17, of Fort Lauderdale Aquatics finished third in the “B” final in 4:45.25 bettering her morning qualifying time of 4:47.71.

Women’s 50-meter freestyle: Top morning qualifier Lara Jackson, 24, of Tucson Ford led from wire-to-wire to win in 24.98, the only swimmer to crack 25 seconds. “I kept thinking don’t lose that lead, my start has always been a strong point for me. I was thinking about being strong at the wall and kick like crazy,” said the two-time NCAA champion. “It’s a good motivation to be on top this year. I don’t think I would be here if I wasn’t thinking about making the 2012 Olympics.”

Women’s 4×200-meter freestyle relay: Athens (Georgia) Bulldogs Swim Club set a U.S. Open record of 7:58.14 to win the title. It was the fastest swim on U.S. soil. Relay members were Chelsea Nauta, Morgan Scroggy, Shannon Vreeland and Megan Romano.

Men’s 100-meter butterfly: Timothy Phillips, 20, of SwimMAC Carolina broke away from a close field to win his first national title in a career-best 51.69, sixth best time in the world this year. Phillips, not tapered, used it as a tune-up for the World University Games in ten days. “I think being able to take it out fast and getting the will to come home was the difference,” Phillips said. “I was able to hold my breathing pattern and kept my head down on the finish. This is my first win here and I am trying to get myself on the scene.”

Men’s 50-meter freestyle: Nathan Adrian, 22, of California Aquatics won his fifth straight national championship in 21.84, fourth best time in the world. Adrian, coming off worlds and at the end of his taper, just missed a medal at worlds in the event placing fourth. Veteran Jason Lezak was fifth in 22.33. “This was better than last week,” Adrian said. “I feel more explosive off the start and finished better. I really enjoy swimming outdoors. There’s not much strategy in the 50, just get in there and swim as fast as possible.”

Other Florida Gold Coast results:

Women’s 100-meter breaststroke: 61. Sofia Johansson, Miami Swimming 1:12.20.

Women’s 400-meter individual medley: 64. Brian Emig, FLA 4:56.08.

Women’s 4×200-meter freestyle relay: 16. Fort Lauderdale Aquatics “A” 8:17.19 (Briana Emig, Damaris Iriondo, Lauren Driscoll, Oliver Katcher)

Men’s 100-meter butterfly: 46. Jeffrey Raymond, Pine Crest Swimming 55.05, 106. David Knight, North Palm Beach 57.62.

Men’s 50-meter freestyle: 83. Andy Bushell, Pine Crest Swimming 23.59.

In the team competition, Stanford Swimming leads combined team scoring with 479, a slim five-point margin over Tucson Ford with 474. SwimMAC is third with 321.

Senior nationals is serving as a selection meet for U.S. swimmers for the 2011 Pan American Games in Mexico in October, and FINA World Junior Championships in August in Peru.

The meet highlights will be broadcast on NBC on Saturday, Aug. 6, 4-6 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 7, 5-6 p.m. and re-airs each night on Universal Sports at 8 p.m. All sessions are also being webcast live at www.usaswimming.org/nationals.

Lochte Wins Fifth Gold Medal, Team USA Ends With A Flourish At World Aquatic Championships

Lochte Wins Fifth Gold Medal, Team USA Ends With A Flourish At World Aquatic Championships


July 31, 2011

WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

Ryan Lochte won his fifth world title on the final night of the eight-day swimming competition at the XIV FINA World Aquatic Championships in Shanghai, China.

On Sunday, U.S. swimmers won four gold medals, one silver and one bronze in the last major international competition before the 2012 London Olympics.

Looking ahead to London, the U.S. team’s performance was “unbelievably encouraging” according to U.S. women’s coach Jack Bauerle. “It was great by Saturday night and just got greater tonight.”

Lochte’s final gold was in the 400-meter individual medley in 4 minutes, 7.13 seconds, 3.29 seconds slower than Michael Phelps’ world record and off Lochte’s personal best of 4:06.08.

“I’m kind of upset just because I wanted to go faster,” Locte said.

U.S. teammate Tyler Clary took silver in 4:11.17. Japan’s Yuya Horihata won the bronze in 4:11.98.

“Getting five gold medals is definitely great,” said Lochte, named Male Swimmer of the Meet. “But the times I’ve gone, I know I can go a lot faster. Worlds was a roller coaster. A lot of places in my races I messed up on. I have a full year to make sure I have those perfect swims.”

Despite Lochte’s success and his dominance over Phelps, he refuses to take over the top spot in men’s swimming. Lochte is only the fourth man to win at least five gold medals in a single world championship.

“I don’t think I’m the top dog,” Lochte said. “As far as I’m concerned right now, I’m at the bottom of swimming.”

Phelps finished with four golds, two silvers and one bronze and echoed Lochte’s sentiments.

“I have a lot of things rolling around in my head and you can take that any way you want to,” Phelps said. “I’m fairly satisfied. This is 2011, not 2012. And it’s not the Olympic Games. We have 12 months to prepare.

“I have been able to gather more motivation here than I already had. I think that’s something that will help me get into better shape for next year. It’s going to be a fun year.”

Phelps got his final gold medal on the 400-meter medley relay with teammates Nick Thoman, Mark Gangloff and Nathan Adrian on anchor leg.

Phelps brought the U.S. from fourth to second on his butterfly leg and Adrian came up with a 47.64 split to take the lead and touch first.

“I think the biggest thing is just being able to finish on a win like that,” Phelps said. “Relays are all about teamwork. To be able to put four guys together to step up and fight, we always find a way to get up and go. It was a great way to end the last event.”

U.S. women Jessica Hardy and Elizabeth Beisel, a sophomore at the University of Florida, came up big to win individual gold medals in the 50-meter breaststroke and 400-meter individual medley.

Rebecca Soni, named Female Swimmer of the Meet, added a bronze in the 50-meter breaststroke in 30.58 to add to her three golds.

World record holder Hardy competed in a tough double, winning the 50-meter breaststroke in 30.19 and then competed in the 50-meter freestyle just fifteen minutes later.

“I was still out of breath when I dove in for the 50 free but it was really fun,” Hardy said. I’m glad I did it, but I am completely dead.”

Beisel won her first world title in 4:31.78, a textile best in the event. She won by more than two seconds ahead of Great Britain’s Hannah Miley in 4:34.22 and Aussie Stephanie Rise in 4:34.23.

“My strategy is really just not to worry too much,” said the 18-year-old Beisel. “It was a very good surprise and I just try to do my best to win medals.”

Teenage phenom Missy Franklin leaves her first worlds with five medals including three golds and two world records. Franklin, who also competes for her high school team, trains in a 25-yard high school pool in suburban Denver.

The U.S. team finished with 16 gold medals (eight men and eight women) and 29 overall. The world championships also returned to normalcy with the textile suits. Two world records were broken in Shanghai as opposed to 43 world records in the shiny high-tech suits at the 2009 Rome World Championships.

While the Americans did dominate final day action, there were other highlights.

China’s Sun Yang, only 19, broke the oldest world record in the 1500-meter freestyle. Sun broke Aussie Grant Hackett’s 10-year-old world record. He finished in 14 minutes, 34.14 seconds to better the 14:34.56 record. He was two seconds off world record pace with four laps to go but turned it on in the final two laps.

Sun has been training in Australia with Hackett’s coach, Denis Cotterell.

Canadian Ryan Cochrane took the silver in 14:44.46 and Hungary’s Gergo Kis won bronze in 14:45.66.

“I was not obsessed with the world record before the final because I wanted to focus on my plan, my aim was to keep the good energy and stable mindset to the end,” said Sun, who also won the 800 freestyle earlier in the meet. “My goal was to win gold.”

Sweden’s Therese Alshammar, who turns 34 this month, won the 50-meter freestyle in 24.14. Dutch swimmers Ranomi Kromowidjojo took silver in 24.27 and Marleen Veldhuis took the bronze in 24.49.

SOFLO sprinter Dara Torres did not compete because she was rehabbing her knee. She is expected to be a factor at the U.S. Olympic trials against swimmers young enough to be her daughter.

Most of the U.S. world swimmers hopped a plane for California where they will compete in ConocoPhillips USA Swimming National Championships that begin on Tuesday at Stanford’s Avery Aquatic Center.

South Florida Aquatic Club has ten swimmers, all women, competing. Several members arrived on Saturday and worked out on Sunday in the meet pool. Others departed on Sunday.

Medal tally

China, one of the favorites to dominate the 2012 Olympics, finished with the most medals with 36 total, 15 goal, 13 silver and 8 bronze. The U.S. had 32 total medals, 17 gold, 6 silver and 9 bronze. Russia was third with 18 including 8 gold medals.

Local Masters Finish Strong On Final Day; Broward County YMCA Finishes Third At Masters Nationals

Local Masters Finish Strong On Final Day; Broward County YMCA Finishes Third At Masters Nationals


WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

April 17, 2011

The 52-swimmer contingent from the Broward County YMCA put on a good showing at the four-day YMCA Masters Short Course National Championships that concluded Sunday at the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex.

Broward County YMCA men (1,648) and women (1,605) finished third among the 42-team field in the combined, men and women’s team standings.

The team also broke two YMCA national records.

Peggy McDonnell, 55, broke the 200-yard individual medley 55-59 age group YMCA national record with a winning time of 2:33.22. The previous record was 2:34.53 set by Danielle Ogier in 2008.

Broward County’s 400-yard freestyle relay team of Coral Springs’ Barbara Protzman, 56, Jeannie Mitchell, 64, Catherine Rust, 57, and Danielle Ogier broke the 55-plus YMCA national record winning in 4:36.62. The previous mark was 4:39.81 set by Mid-Delmarva in 2008.

“We did really well,” said team leader Debbie Cavanaugh. “We were very glad to finish third.”

The team was awarded a plaque for third place which it will present to Sam Monroe, executive director of the LA Lee YMCA located in northwest Fort Lauderdale.

The Sarasota Family YMCA Sharks won the combined team title by sweeping the men’s and women’s team titles.

Local masters will remain busy getting ready for the long course season.

While the team will skip short course nationals in Mesa, Ariz., they are preparing for the April 30 Gulf Coast Masters long course meet in Fort Myers and May 21 Coral Springs Short Course Yards Last Chance Meet at the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex.

The team is looking forward to competing in the Aug. 3-6 U.S. Masters Long Course Nationals in Auburn, Ala.
