New USMS National Record (30-34M 500 Free)

Post by Jeffrey Roddi » Tue, 27 Feb 1996 04:00:00


This past weekend I watched Matt Cetlinsky (sp?) swim 4:29.5 in the 500
yard free at a Masters meet at Univ of Maryland Baltimore.  He broke the
old USMS record by about 10 seconds and the UMBC pool record by 4
seconds!  His first 100 was about 53.0 and then he basically held 54.0
for the next 4 100s.  His 250 split was 2:14.5 and the second half was
2:15.0  He almost double lapped everybody in the pool!

As a guy who swims that race in that age group I can only say one thing....

           ..........SICK!..........

I wonder what he could do in a 1650?

If anyone out there knows this Cetlinsky guy, give him a pat on the back
for me and then tell him to get the hell out of my age group!!!  8-)

Back in '88 he won Nationals in both the 400M and the 1500M freestyles.
His time in the 400 was approximately 3:48 (long course)
His time in the 1500 was approximately 15:05 (lc)

At the '88 Olympics he was 4th in the 400, and was on the winning 4x200M
free relay.

Considering that he was that fast back then, it's no big suprise that
he can go a 4:30 for 500 yards now.

Can't we keep former Olympic caliber people out of age group swimming?

I know you said this tongue in cheek, but I think its great to ex-world
class swimmers at masters meets. It's great to see some of them still
doing amazing swims. I shouldn't say ex-world class, because they are
still world class, only in a different age group. Actually it's the older
swimmers that really inspire me. I would probably trade an olympic medal
for some records in the 105-109 age group. ; )

This reminds me of a young boy who came up to me after a triathlon and
said "Did you use to be a swimmer?"  to which I replied "I still am a
swimmer!".
