Masters World Champs, Day 5: Britain’s Gillingham Strokes 1:04.73 for 100m Breast for 35-39 World Record

By Peter Andersen

RICCIONE, Italy, June 7. EIGHT individual world records, highlighted by a brilliant 100m breast by three-time British Olympian Nick Gillingham in the men's 35-39 age group, tumbled on the fifth day of competition at the Masters World Championships in Riccione, Italy.

Gillingham clocked 1:04.73 to record the fastest time at the meet.

Three other global marks fell today. The USA's Jack Groselle took the men's 50-54 race in a record 1:11.49; while the German pair of Ulrike Urbaniak and L. Knoepfle set women's marks in the same event. Competing in the 50-54 age group, Urbaniak clocked 1:25.32. Knoepfle set a 65-69 standard with her 1:36.41.

Four records fell in the 400 IM as well. Brazil's Djan Madruga, a former Indiana star who said he wanted to break the 45-49 record by a second "for Doc," instead slashed seven seconds off the old mark to become the oldest man to break five minutes. Madruga clocked a startling 4:59.83.

Italy's Lorenzo Marugo, a physician, recorded his third world mark with a 50-54 mark of 5:03.27, victimizing Rick Colella for the third time.

Another Italian, Giampiero Fossati, clocked 5:46.59 to break Ed Cazalet's
5:49.53 from two years ago.

Germany's Brigitte Merten set a record for women 60-64 with her 6:14.40.

Two additional marks, by teams from Italy and Britain, set records in the 200m mixed medley relay.
