Dolan breaks 400-meter IM world record at World Championships

Daily Sports Editor
Continuing his pursuit of swim-
ming immortality, Tom Dolan set a
world record in the 400-meter indi-
vidual medley Tuesday at the World
Championships in Rome. Dolan swam
the race in 4:12.30, breaking the record
of 4:12.36 set by Thomas Darnyi of
Hungary at the 1991 World Champi-
"I had no idea time-wise where I
was," Dolan said. "I had no ideaI was
going to break the world record. My
main goal going into the whole meet
was to try and win the gold medal. I
knew I was out ahead and whenever
I'm ahead in the freestyle no one can
catch me."
Dolan, who has suffered from
asthma lately, just started to over-

come the problem this summer. Be-
cause some of the drugs that people
with his condition usually take are
banned at international meets, he has
had difficulty breathing.

Dolan had trouble breathing in the
morning preliminaries, finishing in
"Once I was in a race tonight Ijust
got in a zone and I didn't worry about
it," Dolan said. "I think as a little kid
growing up everyone dreams of what
I did tonight. In the back of my mind
when I trained I thought about setting
the record. But with the breathing
problem I didn't think I could do it
this time."
Former Wolverine Eric Namesnik
finished third in 4:15.69 after record-
ing the best time in preliminaries.
Namesnik was frustrated after the
"I basically didn't have a good
freestyle," Namesnik said. "Ijust wasn't
there. It's good to see the IM has gotten
better since Thomas retired. Unfortu-

nately I wanted to fill those shoes. There
are no excuses, no reason why I
shouldn't have been faster than at the
U.S. Nationals. I'm severely disap-
pointed. That could be my last race
tonight in terms of the 400 IM."
Namesnik swims again Sunday in
the 200 IM, his best event.
Former Michigan swimmer Eric
Wunderlich swam the 100 meter
breaststroke in 1:01.91 to finish sixth.
Wunderlich, who just started training
in June, was not disappointed with his

in the 200 meter breaststroke.

Tom Dolan broke the three-year old 400-meter individual medley record with
a time of 4:12.30, clipping .06 off the old mark of Thomas Darnyi of Hungary.
Former Wolverine Erik Namesnik finished third in the same race. Dolan tries
for another gold medal in tomorrow's 400-meter freestyle.
