Moore secures multiple medals, sets meet record at National Invitational

Madelyn Moore

Madelyn Moore capped another successful season after securing multiple medals and setting a meet record while competing at the National Invitational Championships in Elkhart, Indiana, at the weekend.

The University of Northern Colorado captain won gold medals in the 50 metres freestyle and 50m backstroke as well as a bronze in the 100m backstroke.

Her winning time of 22.39sec in the 50m freestyle is also a new meet record.

Moore won the 50m backstroke event in 24.77 with her time of 53.74 good enough to earn bronze in the 100m backstroke.

The Bermudian also anchored her school to its second fastest time in the 200m freestyle relay (1:31.31) and fourth-fastest in the 400 metres medley (3:42.61).

The University of Northern Colorado placed eleventh out of 42 schools that competed at the championships to confirm the school’s most successful season to date.

Moore was again an integral part of that success having produced a string of victories, school and meet records and personal best times in the pool.

These outstanding performances earned her the Western Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Year award for the second successive year.

Moore presently holds school records in the 50m freestyle, 100m freestyle, 100m backstroke, 100m butterfly and was part of record-breaking efforts in the 200m medley, 400m medley, 200m freestyle and 400m freestyle relays.

The 21-year-old achieved three NCAA “B” cut times in the 100m backstroke, 50m freestyle and 100m freestyle this past season.

However, she ultimately missed out on securing her spot at the NCAA Championships to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, this week having finished as eighth alternate.

Moore went in to last weekend’s meet on a high having achieved multiple records and personal best times on the way to victory in the 50m freestyle, 100m backstroke and 100m freestyle events in her previous outing at the Western Athletic Conference Championships in Houston, Texas.

Her time of 22.17 in the 50m freestyle lowered her own school record and is also a meet record and personal best.

She also lowered her school record and personal best in the 100m freestyle after touching the wall in 49.10, while her time of 53.14 in the 100m backstroke is also a school record and personal best.

Moore also holds individual national records in the 50m freestyle, 100m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 100m butterfly, and was a member of Bermuda’s team that holds the 4x100m freestyle relay record.
