Another NAG record for Marciano: 47.89 in 100 free to beat Andrew’s 11-12 mark

Make it four for Morris County’s Vinny Marciano: the 12-year-old continued his great weekend at the NASA Showcase Classic with his fourth National Age Group record, this time taking down the 100 free mark in a time trial.

Marciano was just .4 off the record in last night’s individual 100 free race, and he time trialed the event Saturday afternoon hoping to make up the final half-second. It turned out to be worth the extra effort, as Marciano went 47.89 to just sneak under the old Michael Andrew record of 47.95.

That’s the second of Andrew’s sprint free marks Marciano has bettered this weekend; he also broke the 50 free earlier in the meet. His other two records were in the 50 and 100 backstrokes.

    Wow! What a week for him!
    50 back/100 back/50 free/100 free NAG records!
    Congrats!

    All these records make my head spin. :roll:
    I don’t know if somebody has counted the number of NAG records in that SCY season but It must be again very impressive.

    Vinny has now more 11-12 NAG records than anyone, 4, having just surpassed Michael Andrew, who now only has 3.

    Is the 200 free too far for Vinny?

    the 200 free is tough but not impossible… He’s got the speed and endurance. But I think the 50 fly is more likely

    Both 200 Free and 50 fly is within reach for Vinny. Vinny is a hunter… simply hunting more NAG records.

    He can definitely break the 200 free record tonight. 1.45.62 to beat.
    He won the 500 free in 4.50.
    He broke the 100 free NAG record.
    So there’s no reason for him to not shine in the 200 free.
    Hopefully he still has enough gas after swimming in so many races this week.

    There may be a day we can see such a relay team:
    back: Destin Lasco
    breast: Michael Andrew
    fly: Winn Aung
    free: Vinny Marciano

      I don’t know, seems like jumping the gun a bit. Lasco needs to keep growing, and Marciano, while fast, has a long way to go still. MA is a lotttt closer to being a true national level swimmer. And isn’t Winn Aung like 10? Probably not the greatest indicator of future success

    Maybe Vinny should consider going Pro now :)
