Dubai 2010 Day 3: Men's 200m Breaststroke

Day 3 of Competition:
Men's 200m Breaststroke

Toronto's Warren Barnes learnt a valuable lesson during his first try at the Worlds in Dubai yesterday, he's got to go at it from the get go.

"Every swim counts here, and you have to attack it as if it were your last." said Barnes, who shaved close to six seconds off his personal best this morning in the Men's 200m Breaststroke. Barnes stormed off the blocks and never looked back, winning his heat with a time of 2:07.88. The time wasn't low enough to give Barnes a birth to the A Final (placing 15th over-all), but for him the experience was greatly beneficial.

Congratulations go out to Warren on an extremely impressive swim in the Men's 200m Breaststroke. Not only did he set a lifetime best by over SIX seconds (amazing) but he also set the new Ontario Short Course Record. We could not be more proud!

Going into the competition Barnes' previous personal best was a 2:13.42.
