A quartet of meet records took a tumble during the first session of action at the 2015 Bolzano International Swim Meet that takes place in short course meters.

Italy’s Marco Orsi downed his own meet record in the men’s 100-meter free with a time of 46.98.  That swim cleared the 47.22 from a year ago.  USA’s Jimmy Feigen finished second in 48.64.

Orsi also won the 100-meter IM with a time of 53.11, ahead of Fabio Scozzoli’s second-place 54.23.

“I’m very satisfied. These are two good times. The pool here in Bolzano is very fast,” Orsi said.

Bahama’s Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace connected for a meet record in the women’s 100-meter free with a time of 52.69.  She beat Madison Kennedy (53.14) to the wall for that win, and broke the previous record of 52.81 set by Ranomi Kromowidjojo six years ago.

Additionally, Katie Meili took down a record of her own with a 29.86 in the women’s 50-meter breast, lowering her previous mark of 30.44. Meili also took home the 100-meter IM in 58.93.

The Netherlands’ Kira Toussaint uncorked a meet-record time of 58.20 in the women’s 100-meter back, breaking her own record (58.25) from three years ago.

Other winners include:

  • Scozzoli in the 50-meter breast (26.99).
  • Guilherme Guido in the 100-meter back (51.64).
  • Silvia Di Pietro in the 50-meter fly (26.08)
  • Piero Codia in the 50-meter fly (23.39).
