Gregory Burns crushes world record at 1992 Barcelona Paralympic Games

In 1992 Gregory Burns was miles ahead of the pack.  He was the one to watch.  This great video shows his ability in the pool as he crushes the world record in the 100 meter breast stoke with a time of 1:44 during the Barcelona Paralympic Games.   Throwback Thursday #TBT
