BARCELONA, Spain -- Anita Nall reappeared at the 1992 Summer Olympics today.

The sophomore from Towson Catholic High turned in the second fastest qualifying time in the 100-meter breaststroke heats, finishing in 1:09.32. Elena Roudkovskaia, of the Unified team, had the best time of 1:08.75.

The finals were to be held later today.

The strong showing by Nall, 16, also qualified her for breaststroke leg of the 4x100 medley relay. The U.S. team will be heavily favored to win that event.

Nall was the gold-medal favorite to win the 200-meter breaststroke but ended up winning a bronze medal Monday.

Also, Mike Barrowman, of Potomac, Md., set a new Olympic record with a time of 2:11.48 in qualifying for the finals of the 200-meter breaststroke Barrowman, the world record holder in the event with a time of 2:10.60, broke the old Olympic record of 2:13.34 set by Victor Davis of Canada at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles.
