14-year-old Marrit Steenbergen sets Dutch Junior Record in 100 free

Marrit Steenbergen, a 14-year-old from RTC Drachten, won the 100 long-course meter free at the Netherlands Junior Championships over the weekend, setting both the 14-year-old national record and the overall junior national mark, continuing to rewrite the country’s age group records for girls.

Steenbergen already owned the overall Dutch junior record with her time of 57.81 put up as a 13-year-old. But Sunday she lowered that mark while knocking down the 14-year-olds record of 57.81 set by Esmee Vermeulen in 2010. Steenbergen went 57.32, winning the race by almost two seconds.

What do you mean by an “overall junior mark” ? Ajna Kesely swam 57.36 on April 17, and on June 12 Fanni Gyurinivics swam 56.89, They are both from Hungary and are under 13 !

Does anybody know of a world-wide (or at least european/american etc) ranking if junior swimmers ? Does it exist at all ?

I think we could gather the info on each country (at least the most representative ones) if we have the age defined..

You’re probably right.
Missy Franklin swam 54.03 in 2009.
