BRIGHTON, Michigan, February 16. LAST weekend, Lois Kivi Nochman notched four FINA Masters world records in her first meet in the 85-89 age group. The records occurred at a short course meter meet.
She has a habit of dropping multiple world records in a single day, as she has achieved the feat a total of four times. She set records in the 70-74, 75-79, 80-84 and 85-89 divisions in 1994, 1999, 2004 and this past weekend.
Nochman clocked a time of 2:18.55 in the 100-meter IM to clear Margery Meyer's 2:19.98 posted in 2007. Nochman also hit the wall in 4:59.50 in the 200-meter fly to smash the 5:42.80 set by Jean Durston in 1999.
Meanwhile, 25 minutes later, Nochman stopped the clock in 5:03.33 in the 200-meter IM to wipe out the 5:09.92 set by Maria Lenk in 2000. In her last event of the meet, Nochman posted a 2:23.99 in the 100-meter fly to beat Durston's 2:36.50 set in 1999.
The four world records gave Nochman a career total of 92 USMS national records and 46 FINA Masters world records.
