    Background: Australia's teenage swimming star, Shane Gould, has broken the 100 meters freestyle world record.

    It was the only freestyle record she did not hold outright -- having shared the previous 100 meters record with another Australian, Dawe Fraser.

    Shane Gould is a 15-year-old schoolgirl, and she swam the 100 meters on Saturday in 58-point-5 records, cutting four-tenths of a second off the previous record.

    The young swimmer now has her sights set on the Olympic Games, and some experts are predicting that she would win an unprecedented six gold medals at the games.
