Lauren Boyle set 800 free record


US-based Lauren Boyle set a new kiwi national record at the New Zealand championships last night, winning in 8:33.30, more than 2.5 seconds under the FINA ‘A’ qualifying time, and more than 2 seconds quicker than the record set by Phillipa Langrell at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. Interesting to read that she set her first national record as a 13-year-old in the 50, and has since gradually moved up the distances, until now as a 23-year-old she wants to try out the 800.
