“By 1976, Steinbach had become the first man to crack 50se, at 49.99. …”
K. Steinbach has never held the world record ; it’s J. Montgomery the first to crack 51se in 1975

Gori, on this site, you’ll find the authors do, for the most part, get things right and certainly know their swimming history. Steinbach held the world best time, as stated, short-course. Jim Montgomery, AS STATED, held the world record at the same time, long-course. You need to read more carefully 🙂 You err in all your points, including suggesting we say Steinbach held a world record (we don’t) and failing to spot the difference between long and short-course – as noted clearly in the article – 1975 irrelevant … he was NOT the first to do so in s/c. Montgomery’s long-course effort was by far the greater swim, of course, but you make a mistake in muddling up what you have misread; your error, not our’s 🙂 The clue is in the sentence that precedes all of that … “Short-course world records were not recognised until March 1991, all times before that world bests”. If you’re here to spot errors, you’re going to have to pay more attention 🙂 regards, Craig

I apologize ! I apologize !
The title (“reaming of further records at the speed of Spitz”) between the two parts has made me misunderstand your article.
But don’t think I’m come on your site to spot errors or suggest you’re unprofessionnel, I’m really appreciating Swimvortex and I know your authors’ quality.
I only supposed this sentence incuded a typing error, that’s very all. Nobody is perfect, is not it ?
I apologize one more time !

Apology accepted. Nobody is perfect is the perfect analysis of us all, Gori 🙂
