Lois Kivi Nochman Notches Four FINA Masters World Records

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.
