Moses Sets Breaststroke Record
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ Ed Moses clipped .07 seconds off the world record in the 100-meter breaststroke Wednesday at the USA Swimming National Championships.
Moses’ time of 1 minute, 0.29 seconds erased Roman Sloudnov’s old mark, set last June at the Russian Olympic trials.
Moses, the 2000 Olympic silver medalist in the event, qualified for the world championships in Fukuoka, Japan, on July 22-29, and gets $12,500 from USA Swimming for breaking the world record.
Sloudnov took the bronze behind Moses at Sydney.
