Ed MosesSwimmer sets records

In one nine-day stretch, second-year student Ed Moses has established himself as perhaps the greatest swimmer in U.Va. history, winning four national championships and setting two world records.

Two of the titles and both records came March 24 and 25 at the NCAA Championships, held in Minneapolis. Moses set short-course records -- for races held in 25-meter pools -- in winning the 100-meter breaststroke in 57.66 seconds and the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:06.40. No other Cavalier swimmer had ever won more than one NCAA title.

One week later, Moses triumphed in the Phillips 66 National Championships in Federal Way, Wash. Competing in a 50-meter pool, Moses won the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:13.86 on March 29, then came back the next night to win the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:01.32.

Moses will compete in the U.S. Olympic Trials in early August, shooting for a spot on the team that will compete in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia in September.
