    • It was a good swim. She done well. I actually hold the world record for fastest 100m backstroke since 1992 but never was recognised because I touched the ropes. I was at a high school competition back when I was 13 years old. My time was 41.1 seconds. The world record in Olympics as off 2018 is 48.88 seconds.
