Loader & the 200m Fly

Loader & the 200m Fly

Post by gra.. » Tue, 23 Feb 1993 10:16:36

The FINA World Cup Series was held this year in Asia and Europe.
Specifically Shanghai, Beijing, Paris, Malmo, Gelsenkirchen, Sheffield
and Milan.  Loader contested the 200m fly in all 7 meets and won each
time.  The conditions for the World Cup state that the pool length
must be 25 metres.  A 25 metre pool is referred to by FINA as a
short course pool.  Loader broke the world short course record for
200 fly 3 times-in France, Sweden and Germany.  There are no official
conversions for short course to long course but I will list an
acceptable set in another posting.

Unfortunately, United States swimmers do not often contest the World
Cup series.  The next meeting between Stewart and Loader could be the
Pan_Pacs in Japan in August.  If not there then probably at the World
Champs the following year.
