Day 1 was distance day at the 2017 USMS Spring National Championships. While that means the two expected Olympic champions, Nathan Adrian and Ryan Lochte, didn’t make an appearance, there will still stars of the Masters’ circuit present.
In the men’s 65-69 age group, Jim McConica came within .05 seconds of breaking a National Record in the men’s 1650. He swam a 19:07.86, which was just shy of Jim Clemmons’ 19:07.81 from 2015.
Making an appearance in the men’s 1000 free was former NCAA and U.S> Open Record holder in the 200 free Simon Burnett. He won the 30-34 age group in 9:51.84. That made him the fastest overall swimmer in the event.
Sean Monahan pulled off an impressive double, winning for the youngest men’s age group, 18-24, in both the 1650 (16:52.11) and 1000 (10:05.17). The races were swum about 3 hours apart.
The only National Record to be broken on the meet’s first day came in the women’s 95-99 1000 yard freestyle, where Maurine Kornfeld swam a 23:57.82 at 95 years old. That time was less than half of the old record of 50:44.12 done by Anne Dunivin in 2012.
