Fraser breaks swim record

| 29/03/2009

(Swimming World Magazine): Cayman’s Shaune Fraser broke 1:41 barrier, and lowered his NCAA record in the 200-yard fly to head into the diving break. Fraser touched out Georgia’s Mark Dylla, 1:40.75 to 1:40.85, in one of the closest finishes in the event in NCAA history. Notably, Logan Madson rounded out the top three with a 1:41.70. Rainer Kendrick of Texas holds that record, however, with a 1:54.97 to 1:55.00, triumph over Jayme Cramer of Stanford in 2004. Fraser’s effort eclipsed his NCAA record of 1:41.17 set during prelims, while Dylla joined Fraser and Michael Phelps (1:39.70) as the only swimmers under 1:41 in the history of the event.
