yale’s kim takes meet record in 100 breast


Yale’s Susan Kim waited for the perfect time to put forth the greatest race of her career. The junior emerged from a strong field — including defending champion Courtney Kilkuts — to take down the Ivy 100y Breaststroke championship.

All that it took was dropping an astounding 2.1 seconds off of her fifth-place time from a year ago. Kim’s feat in the breaststroke, traditionally one of the most difficult disciplines to chop large chunks of time off, especially at such a short distance, was nothing sort of amazing. To go from 1:04.15 in the finals a year ago to a 1:02.05 was quite eye-popping.

Not only was it the fastest time that Kim has ever swam in her career, it also rewrote all of the existing League records, including Princeton’s Carwai Seto’s all-time mark from 1992 (1:02.34) and fellow Tiger Stephanie Hsiao’s meet record (1:02.43) from 2003.
