Jeff Farrell Continues Record Breaking Year! Again!!
It seems every time Santa Barbara Masters swimmer Jeff Farrell decides to enter a meet, he has already decided to take down a World Record. It has happened in just about every meet Jeff has entered in the past year. In the last three weeks at short course meters meets, Jeff has broken records the 50 Free, 100 Free, and 50 Breast. In Woodland hills the week before Thanksgiving; Jeff broke the 50 free record by half-a-second in 28.00. This past weekend in Long Beach at the SCM Champs; Jeff took down the 100 free(1:03.33) by over a second and the 50 breast(37.26) by just over 2 tenths of a second. How does he do it?! Well, he first decides to do it, not try it. Then, he seeks advice on the things he thinks may help in the areas he does not feel he has mastered. This combination is dangerously effective and should be applied more often by the rest of us!! Way to go Jeff!!
No man ever overcame a greater obstacle to make the U. S. Olympic swimming team than Jeff Farrell, the world's premier freestyle sprinter at the time of the 1960 Rome Olympic Games. Farrell, with world standard times at 100 yds., 100 meters, 110 yds., 200 yds., 200 meters and 220 yds., was considered a shoo-in for the Olympic team when he came down with acute appendicitis six days before the Olympic Trials at Detroit. The operation was a success, but Farrell, wrapped in yards of adhesive tape, was considered in no shape to swim. He refused a special dispensation and took his chances in the sudden-death trials that mark U. S. team selection methods. Farrell placed fourth, and qualified for the relays. By Rome, Farrell was fully recovered and anchored both U. S. men's relays to Olympic and world records for his two Olympic gold medals.Read More about Jeff Farrell from USMS.org
