March 29, 2001

Austin, Texas - Stanford senior swimmer Anthony Robinson broke the world record for the 50 meter breaststroke in a time trial this afternoon, after the morning prelims on the third day of the U.S. National Swimming Championships were completed at the Jamal Texas Swim Center.

The 6'5' Robinson, who finished second yesterday in the 100 meter breaststroke behind Ed Moses's world record effort, clocked 27.49 seconds for the one-lap sprint.

Robinson, a native of Houston, Texas, is the 2001 NCAA Champion in the 50 free and swam the second leg of Stanford's 2001 NCAA Champion 200 free relay. The senior is a 20-time All-American and is a two-time Pac-10 Champion in the 100 breast (2001 and 1999).
