Worst Olympic Swim Trial

Eric Moussambani from Equatorial Guinea, nicknamed “Eric The Eel” by the media, won brief international fame at the 2000 Summer Olympics when he swam his heat of the 100m freestyle in 1:52.72 and won, because the two other competitors were disqualified for false starts. His time was more than twice that of his faster competitors, and outside even the 200m world record. However he had set a new personal best and national record.
