aemisegger dominates in 1650 again; lowers meet record


Another year, another 1650 meet record for Alicia Aemisegger.

Last year, she “Aemiseggered” the record… crushing the old mark of 16:16.94 to lower the standard to a sub-16 minute mark — touching the wall at 15:58.57.

Well, to expect the Princeton junior to drop another 18 seconds off the record is to sit there and expect the final rose ceremony on ABC’s The Bachelor to equate to a long and happy marriage.

Probably not going to happen.

But Aemisegger is extraordinary in the 1650. She has that rare combination of stamina and speed that is vital for such a grueling race. Not to mention that she has already proven it can be done by besting the 1997 mark from Cristina Teuscher and also crushing DeNunzio Pool’s pool record by Lezlie Mix (1994 — 16:13.06) in the process.

So there was no 15:40.57 on this day. Instead, Alicia put forth a new meet record of 15:57.34.

To put that in perspective, her closest competitor, Harvard’s Alexandra Clarke, touched the wall at 16:10.92 while the third-place finisher clocked in at 16:29.09 (32 seconds slower than Aemisegger).
