OF LOCAL NOTE . . . Palo Alto's Daniela Barnea was pleasantly surprised recently when she received an official certificate from FINA, the world governing body for aquatics, notifying she had broken a world record for her age group (women's 65-69) in the 200-meter butterfly. Barnea just can't figure out why it took so long. She swam the race at the Pacific Masters Swimming Long Course Championships at Chabot College in Hayward during July 9-11. Barnea broke six Pacific records at the meet, including one in the 200 fly that also was a national of 3:29.68. The former national mark was 3:36.25 set in 1994. Barnea didn't know it then, but her time also broke the existing world mark of 3:33.04. Thus, the veteran Masters swimmer has another item for her impressive scrapbook of accomplishments.
