How World Records Are Broken


Motivated by the stories we do every week, Growing Bolder CEO Marc Middleton got back in the pool for the first time in 35 years. That was two years ago. Today, Marc is a member of Rowdy Gaines’ Blu Frog Masters Team and after this weekend, the Froggers have something to croak about.

This is a story of a dream, a plan and perfect execution. Whether you’re an active swimmer or you’ve never been in a pool, watch this story and see how any one, at any age, can still kick down walls and seize opportunities for greatness.

Here’s how the numbers broke down:
Rowdy Gaines: 23.95
Keith Switzer: 24.85
Marc Middleton: 24.96
Scot Weiss: 25.03
New World Record for the 200 Meter Freestyle Relay: 1:38.79 (old record: 1:40.17)
