Coughlin Starts Off Day 2 With Olympic Trials Record In 100 Backstroke

By Sarah Tolar

LONG BEACH, Calif., July 8. NATALIE Coughlin whet the crowd’s appetite for another day of record breaking performances with an Olympic Trials meet record in heat seven of the 100 meter backstroke preliminaries. Coughlin, swimming for California Aquatics, touched at 1:00.71, eclipsing Janie Wagstaff’s 1992 meet record of 1:00.84. Coughlin was the only woman of the morning to flip at the 50 in under 30 seconds.

2000 Olympian, Courtney Shealy, of the Athens Bulldogs, was among a pack of four women to go 1:02 this morning. The rest of the field, including 1996 Olympic gold medalist, Beth Botsford, posted 1:03’s, with two 1:04’s sneaking into the top 16 that will make up the semifinals.
