Barbadian breaks her national swim record
Barbadian Lani Cabrera has broken her national record in the 200m freestyle.
She swam the race today in a time of 2:04.10 at the FINA World Championships in Doha 2014, Qatar, improving on the 2:06.34 she clocked at the World Championships in Istanbul 2012.
After not being able to start the 800m freestyle race on December 4 due to a bad cold and then swimming the 400m Free on December 5, she still managed to improve her entry time by two seconds.
Cabrera was then able to muster her strength to break her 200 Free record.
Lani made the finals in all of her events at Veracruz 2014 and was able to swim all three courses in less than three weeks when she competed at the Georgia Tech Invite in Atlanta, Georgia last month for her Division 1 Florida Gulf Coast University Swim and Dive Team where she continued to better all her times in Short Course Yards.
She currently ranks 394 in the Swimming World/ FINA top 500 in the 800 LCM Free, the only Barbadian swimmer ranked in the top 500 in any event.
The athlete will now continue with her FGCU NCAA Division 1 schedule that leads up to the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association conference championships in February 2015.
