Leisel Jones of Australia broke her own world record in the 100-meter breaststroke at the Commonwealth Games, finishing in 1 minute, 05.09 seconds on Monday.
Just imagine. She could swim about 16 seconds per length in our 25m pool. A length which usually takes me 35 - 45 seconds swimming freestyle. That's right, I take three times as long to swim the distance as the elites do. Fortunately when I run it only takes me twice as long to do the distance as the elites.
