STANFORD FROSH SETS SWIM RECORD

Jenny Thompson set the world record in the women's 100-meter freestyle on Sunday at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

The Stanford freshman set the mark with a time of 54.48 seconds in the prelims, then came back to take the finals in 54.63, also faster than the previous record of 54.73 by Kristin Otto while swimming for East Germany in 1986.
