Swimming Records Fall
Two world records fell at the World Deaf Swimming Championships in Portugal last night. Marcus Titus of the U.S. broke the record in the men's 50 breast stroke, which makes him 18th overall in world competition. The Ukraine's Andriy Zurgalidze and Russia's Martin Fomin rounded out the top three. The Ukraine's Anna Tovsta shaved off three seconds from the women's 400 IM. Germany's Jarmila Gupte and Linda Neumann finished second and third in the race. Rebecca Meyers of the U.S. topped the women's 200 free style with Russia's Luiza Marushkina and Great Britain's Hannah Fitton finished second and third.
