Men’s 200 Fly – 2013 US Junior Nationals as reported by swimswam:
Andrew Seliskar topped one of the fastest fields in age group history, touching in 1:56.54, breaking Kyle Whitaker’s super-suit-aided record of 1:56.95 from 2009. The top four finishers currently rank 2nd (Seliskar), 3rd (Justin Wright), 5th (Corey Okubo), and 6th (Justin Lynch) all time on the men’s 15-16 age group list. (Editor Note: Michael Phelps ranks first.) Lynch, better known for his speed (he’s the National Age Group record holder in the 100 fly), was out like a shot, touching in 55.95 at the 100, with the other three hanging between 0.75-1 second back. Seliskar held steady over the final two lengths, coming home in 59.92 for the win.
Lynch hung on for second in 1:57.80. Wright closed well, but fell short to touch third in 1:58.21. Okubo was just behind in 1:58.28.
