Eric Shanteau storms the 200 breaststroke in Austin

Eric Shanteau is "our" Lance Armstrong and he is definitely a motivated swimmer as of late! From the Statesman:

At the Austin Grand Prix, however, a ripped Shanteau proclaimed, "I'm back, bigger and stronger than ever."

That wasn't an idle boast. Saturday, on the third and final day of competition, Austin's Shanteau blew away the field in the 200-meter breaststroke, setting a pool record of 2 minutes, 9.97 seconds in the process.

The old mark of 2:10.40 belonged to Ed Moses and for years had been a source of irritation to Shanteau and training partner Brendan Hansen, who at one point held about every other breaststroke record.
