Four World Records in a Day; A Look Back at the 1989 Pan Pacific Championships

PHOENIX, Arizona, July 2. WITH the 2010 Pan Pacific Championships coming up next month, Jeff Commings took a superb look back in a story featured in the July issue of Swimming World Magazine at a remarkable day in which four world records fell at the 1989 Pan Pacific Championships on Aug. 20 of that year.

The foursome of Mike Barrowman, Janet Evans, Dave Wharton and Tom Jager were already swimming legends by the time the 1989 Pan Pacs rolled around, but the four cemented their place in history by each setting an individual world record that day. Commings caught up with the four recently to relive that monumental memory.
