2008-09-07 00:00

When it comes to sprinting, Roland Schoeman proved that there is still another level to reach with his most outstanding performance yet as he raced to another world record in the 50 metres freestyle at the Telkom South African Short Course Swimming Championships in Germiston on Saturday night.

The talented Arizona-based star raced out in 9,75sec at the 25 metres turning point and held his newly adjusted stroke together really well to hit the timing pad in an amazing 20,64sec, breaking the world mark by 0,17sec — considered a massive margin at international level. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
