Hansen sets world 100 breast record

2 August 2006

Brendan Hansen broke his own world 100m breaststroke record, Michael Phelps won the 400m individual medley and Katie Hoff set a US 200m individual medley record on Day 1 of the US Swim Championships.

Hansen won in 59.13 seconds to shatter the world record he set at the 2004 US Olympic trials in Long Beach for the Athens Games.

He completed the first 50m in 27.66 seconds and surged to the finish to touch 0.17s ahead of his previous best. Scott Usher was a distant second in 1:01.07 with Matthew Lowe third in 1:01.02.

Phelps, the Athens Olympics hero who is aiming for more multi-medal stardom in two years at the Beijing Games, captured the 400m IM in 4:10.16, 1.9 seconds off the world record he set at Athens but 1.37 ahead of runner-up Ryan Lochte.

Hoff won the 200 IM in 2:10.05 to break the American record of 2:10.41 she set last year at the world championships in Montreal and defeat runner-up Whitney Myers by 2.01 seconds.

Klete Keller and Kate Ziegler won 400 freestyle titles. Keller's win came in 3:44.27, 0.16 off his American record and 2.54 ahead of runner-up Peter Vanderkaay. Ziegler won in 4:05.75 with Hoff second in 4:05.83.

Natalie Coughlin won the women's 100 butterfly in 57.78 seconds, edging Rachel Komisarz by one-hundredths of a second.
