"This is absolutely unbelievable,"
Gross said. I cannot believe it. It is
amazing, can it be. I thought perhaps I
could swim a 53.5, but 53.0, that is
amazing. Iam almost speechless."

"I SWAM my best time and got beat
by a great athlete," Morales said.
In the qualifying heats, Morales and
Gross both erased the last listing of 1972
Olympic hero Mark Spitz from the
record books. Spitz, who won seven
golds and set seven world records in the
Munich Games, went into the day with
the Olympic record of 54.27, but he said
