ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to free style swimmer Simon Burnett. Burnett a junior at the University of Arizona in Tucson, broke one of the longest standing short course yards records when he clocked 1:32.22 for the 200 yard freestyle, December 4, 2005 at the Texas Invitational in Austin. The former record of 1:33.03 was held by the legendary swimmer Matt Biondi set over 17-and-a-half years ago — also in Austin — at the 1987 NCAA Championships. Simon, who will turn 22 in April 2005 hails from Great Britain, so hell go down as the US. Recently, Swimming World Magazine traveled to Tucson to talk to Simon after one of his practices.
