Four World Records In Three Days For Inge De Bruijn
May 29, 2000
SHEFFIELD - Inge de Bruijn established her fourth world record in just three days at the Speedo Super Grand Prix in Sheffield.
The flying Dutch woman went to Britain with the aim of establishing four world records. On the final day of action it was three down and one to go. Could she reach her final target?
The 100m freestyle record is held by Le Jingyi at 54.01. It was her final target!. At the half way stage she was down on the split of the Chinese swimmer. But she came storming back to record 53.80. It is 0.21 better than the mark.
Afterwards she admitted "I'm genuinely shocked I really didn't believe that record was beatable!"
