INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, July 8. IN a special feature time trial, SwimMAC Carolina's Mark Gangloff added the 50 breast American record to the 100 breast mark he claimed last night.

Gangloff, with Auburn teammates Michael Silva and Adam Klein bracketing him, clocked a time of 27.34 in the sprint breast. The swim, while well off the global mark of 26.89 set by Brazil's Felipe Silva in May, cleared the oldest American men's record off the books. Gangloff's time eclipsed Ed Moses' 27.39 set in March 2001.

Silva (27.80) and Klein (28.26) posted some pretty quick times from lane three and five, respectively.
