Swimmers competing at the International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics Championships last week in College Park, Md., shattered 152 world, national, and IGLA records. Karlyn Pipes-Neilsen and former Olympian Glenn Mills took six International Amateur Swimming Federation (FINA) masters world records, according to a press release.

In the men's 45-49 age group, Mills set short-course world records in the 200-meter individual medley (2:13.42), 100-meter breaststroke (1:05.74), and 200-meter breaststroke (2:22.68). In the women's 45-49 age group, Pipes-Neilsen set records in the 800-meter freestyle (9:20.08), 100-meter individual medley (1:06.80), and 100-meter backstroke (1:05.55).

One of the most inspiring moments of the competition came when 88-year-old Margaret Camp set a new IGLA record in the 50-meter freestyle with a time of 1:48:20. (The Advocate)
