Default Can you pass the New York lifeguard test?

I was interested by this story (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/16/bu...feguard&st=cse) about the test one has to pass every season to re-up as a New York City lifeguard -- the swimming test is 100 meters in 1:20 (don't know if it's long course or short.) I would flunk by more seconds than I care to mention -- not that I'm planning to apply -- but it's an interesting goal...All I have to do is string together four 19-second lengths, right?
