New National Record! - Charlotte Green '11

Ok, so it's a Scottish National Medley Relay Record, but nonetheless, very cool. Charlotte is studying abroad right now, and still swimming... fast! Her team headed to England for a meet and she competed very well. Read below for details.... and, by the way, how cool is that!!??
Hey Coach!

Just wanted to send a quick update. This weekend we had the BUCS (British Universities and College Sport) swim meet in Sheffield, England. I swam the 50, the 100, and 200 free. It was in short course meters, but here are my times anyway:

50 Free: 28.1
Free Relay Split - 27 something
Medley Split (with a LZR) - 26.7
100 free: 1:00.6
200 free: 2:14

Other than the medley relay with the LZR I was just wearing a normal suit. I looked up the converted times too:

50 free: 25.18, and 23.92 with the lzr
100 free: 54.3
200 free: 2:00.06

Not too bad for the second week of season... i dont think... And faster than my times from November last year. I ended up 12th in the 100 free and 14th in the 200, which is cool - but it didn't make it into finals (they take the top 10). But our 200 free relay got 3rd, and our 200 medley relay got 2nd,
and broke the Scottish National Record! I'm attaching pictures of our team. Anyway, overall a relatively succesful weekend. I hope everything is going well back at Bates!

See you in a little over a month, and tell the team i say hi!
