Browsing: Libby Trickett

Two world records fell at the Australian Grand Prix yesterday. Libby Trickett broke the 100 butterfly world record with a time of 55.74, beating Felicia Galvez’s time of 55.89 from two weeks ago. And Leisel Jones lowered her own 100 breaststroke world record from 1:03.86 to 1:03.72. Read here and here at SwimInfo.

Quite interesting that Libby Trickett took only one breath when breaking world record in the long course 50 meters freestyle at the Australian Trials, when she a few days earlier took what seems like more than 30 breaths in the also world record breaking 100.
