Isabelle Stadden of the United States has aged up to now be 17 years old, which means she has a whole new set of age group records to conquer. But, the Cal-commit is off to a good start, firing off a quick time of 2:09.15 to take the top seed of the women’s 200m backstroke at the 2019 Pan American Games.
While competing in this morning’s heats, the high school class of 2020 swimmer notched the only sub-2:10 time of the morning, with fellow American Alex Walsh right behind in 2:10.06.
For Stadden, the teen has been as fast as 2:08.24 in this women’s 200m back event, a time she notched last year to check- in as the 5th fastest 15-16 female performer in U.S. history.
Now at 17, this 2:09.15 effort from Lima, Peru ranks her as 9th in history among American 17-18 females, knocking Olympic medalist Kathleen Baker down to the #10 spot. Stadden’s aforementioned PB, should she come close to that or even beat it tonight, would rank 5th in the 17-18 age group all-time.
Splits for Stadden’s swim this morning include 1:02.60/1:06.55 for the 2:09.15 top seed.
