Fastest 50(yds) - 22.1 fastest 100(yds) high 48-49 range. Haven't timed myself in a bit. While back I was tying to get back to sub 1min during workouts.

Probably meant 60 seconds ... which would make more sense given the 50 goal time.

About 40 seconds (for SC meters). 100m in 1:23 to 1:25. I can do 43's for a long time on 1:00 though. Back in the day (as a 15-16 year-old), I think I swam about 32 seconds for 50m. Much better at distance. I am not and have never been a sprinter, in any sport. Convinced I was born with no fast-twitch fibers.

24.10 SCM and my 10 year old went 37.5 last year.

50 Free was and will never be my event I did that time leading off a relay.

As a 40 year old my 1500 times are 16:58.90 SCM and 17:32.00 LCM ...

So 33.99 /50 or 35.01 / 50

32 seconds four years ago at a master's swim meet (my first and last!). Came in 4th for my AG (45-49, not very good competition, I know). But then I caught the triathlon bug and stopped that short distance stuff. I'm sure I could improve on that record, but who has the time?! I did enjoy it. The adrenaline. The training. The feeling of going all out and being just totally spent at the end of a measly 30 seconds.

Seriously, I just wanna add my 2 cents to this thread for a SERIOUS REALITY CHECK.

 

I usually beat 90% of triathletes out of the water in big races, which means I'm a decent swimmer (this is NOT a humblebrag - nearly any HS competitive swimmer would squash me, given they would beat well over 95%+ over triathlon swimmers in races.)

 

My 50m time is probably 36-37. And I think that's pretty decent for triathletes, at least to what I'm seeing at races, even if it's nowhere near fast compared to 'real' swim speedsters. 

 

But from reading this thread, you'd think the average BT swimmer goes sub 35 for 50m all the time, which definitely is NOT the case. I'd actually be surprised if even a quarter of BTers could go sub40 for a 50m right now.

Truth ^

And in the real world, what the heck does an all-out 50m time have to do with a triathlon swim split?  My best 50m time (from decades ago) is likely faster then the VAST majority of those here on BT, yet it means absolutely NOTHING when I am at the start of a 2.4 mile IM swim.

If you want to get the brag in, what's your threshold pace?  Now we're talking about something that matters.

The last time I swam a meet in LCM I swam the 100 in 1:23.16 and my 50m split time was 41.58.

I am in no way a sprinter. Our masters coach tells me I only have one speed, LOL

Did any one of you three read the OP ? Nothing to do wth triathlon swim. It was something the OP threw out for fun after watching the olympics.

Well, the OP was nearly 10-years ago so I figured that pretty well negates the original question in the context of a triathlon site.

No they weren't.  Just nobody talked about how bad they were until you came along saying triathlon swimming isn't special swimming!
