Hoff Captures 200 IM in American Record Time

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 1 KATIE Hoff blazed to another American record in the 200-meter IM at the 2006 ConocoPhillips USA Swimming National Championships in Irvine, Calif. She came up just shy of knocking down Wu Yanyan's drug-tainted world record of 2:09.72 set in 1997 with a meet-record time of 2:10.05.

"I'm so excited to have gotten a best time," Hoff said. "Pan Pacs is going to be even better."

Tucson Ford's Whitney Myers pocketed silver in 2:12.06, while Club Wolverine's Kaitlin Sandeno earned bronze in 2:13.86.

At the 50-meter mark, Hoff went under the world-record pace by .30 seconds with a 28.51. She was .03 seconds off that pace with a 1:01.88 at the 100-meter mark. At the 150-meter mark, Hoff remained under world-record pace with a 1:39.49.

In the consolation heat, Germantown Academy’s Teresa Crippen went out the fastest with a 1:03.15 at the 100-meter mark. Club Wolverine’s Kathleen Carroll, however, had a different plan as she came out of nowhere to rocket to first in 2:16.07 from lane one. Meanwhile, Aquazot’s Kristen Caverly finished second in 2:16.54, while Bulldog Aquatics’ Ava Ohlgren grabbed third in 2:16.57.

In the bonus consolation heat, Greenwood Tiger Shark Caitlin Iverson led at the halfway mark in 1:04.01, but Swim Atlanta’s Kathleen Hersey tracked her down to win in 2:17.80. Additionally, Penn State’s Karie Haglund picked up second in 2:18.39, while Bluefish Swim Club’s Elizabeth Beisel garnered third in 2:18.43.
