World Cup: Roland show just carries on . . .

Posted on November 12, 2009

And who knows maybe beyond.

One of the more exciting performances was that set by home girl and frequent HPC and TuksSwimming guest, Sweden's Theresa Alsheimer in the women’s 50m butterfly event.

The number of World Records and World Cup Records that have fallen during the first three legs of this year World Cup Series is astonishing.

"Man, I am glad that I don't have to pay the bill of $10 000 to each swimmer who breaks a World Record" said Steven Ball, TuksAquatics Manager and coach.

All in all there have been good showings by the South African male swimmers, and this was emphasised by the good performances of Darian Townsend, Neil Versfeld, Cameron van den Burgh and George Du Rand (who achieved a World Record in the 200m backstroke event in Moscow, a few days earlier).

So the World Cup show moves on to Berlin over the weekend, where we will look in anticipation to what TuksSwimming's Roland Schoeman and the other international superstars have in stall for us.
