Jack Groselle Sets Short Course Masters World Record In Michigan

BRIGHTON, Michigan, February 7. U.S. Masters Swimming legend Jack Groselle added to his long list of swimming accomplishments last weekend with a world record in the short course meters 400 freestyle at the Super Bowl meet at Brighton High School.

The multiple national record holder just entered the 60-64 age group and posted a 4:35.11 in the 400 free to take down Jim McConica’s 4:35.39 from 2012. It marks Groselle’s first world record in this event, and gives him four Masters world records.

Groselle owns the short course world record in the 100 free for the 55-59 age group with a 54.50, as well as the long course records in the same age group in the 50 free (25.01) and 100 free (56.08).

Groselle also made a run at Rich Abrahams’ 100 free record of 56.63, falling a bit short with a 57.39. He also posted a 1:06.84 in the 100 IM, a little more than a second off Tim Shead’s mark of 1:05.53.
