Five Israeli records were set over the weekend at the national swimming championships at the Wingate Institute, but Nimrod Shapira Bar-Or failed to improve his record in the 200 meter freestyle and will not be going to Beijing. Bar-Or, who needed to better his national record of 1:48.76 minutes by four hundredths of a second to join the Israeli delegation, could only manage a time of 1:49.33m on his way to the title on Friday. Alon Mandel proved he's in excellent form ahead of the Olympics on Saturday, clocking a new Israeli record time of 53.61s in the 100m butterfly. The women's 100m butterfly record was also broken on Saturday, with Amit Ivri touching the wall after 59.02s.
