Splitting 1:03.92/1:13.48/1:20.98/59.83, Malgil’s time would rank within the top 100 performances ever in the men’s 13-14 age group within the United States.
Malgil’s other performances included a 55.89 100m free a 1:59.64 200m free and 2:12.79 200m IM.
Malgil’s new Age Record marks the first time he has been under the 4:40 mark in the 400 IM.
