Summer Nationals 2012

Eric started training to qualify for the U.S. Masters Swimming 2012 Summer Nationals.  It’s July 5-8 in Omaha. He’s hoping to qualify in the 50, 100, 200 free and the 200 IM.  He hasn’t done a long-course meet (meter pool) in a long time!

Currently, Eric swims the 50 free in :23.5, which converts to 27.33 in meters.

His 100 free time is :51, which is 59.1 in meters.

His 200 free is around 1:58, which converts to 2:16.

Finally, he swims the 200 IM somewhere around 2:09, which would be 2:31 in meters.

The qualifying times for Nationals for these events in his age group are:

50 free – :28.5

100 free – 1:03.98

200 free – 2:28.15

200 IM – 2:45.26

He should qualify for them all.  He should also be able to qualify for the 14th FINA World Master Championship but traveling to Italy for it would be a lot more expensive than a trip to Omaha:)
