[Don] Schollander averaged only 1:04.1 to win the 1964, 400m in a 4:12+.
They seemed like Gods to me back then but so slow now. I think in my prime with some more distance free I could have done those times? I think I made 7 out of a set of 10 x 100 @ 1:10 meters in 1980 and that was in a workout when I was going for only the 100 fly. Strange.
Kate Ziegler would kill them all. As a matter of fact she would "LAP"
It seems that the1972 Olympics is about like an elite 35 or 40-year Masters Swimming Age Group record.
I wonder about the girls?
