Alex Shackell of Carmel Swim Club swam a 2:08.68 LCM 200 fly Friday night en route to the win in Indianapolis on night 3. She continued her momentum from day 2 when she swam a personal best in the 100 fly (57.63).
That was a best time for Shackell as her previous best stood at a 2:09.44 which she swam to win Summer Juniors last summer.
200 Fly Split Comparisons:
The biggest difference today was Shackell’s front half, as she was out faster on both of her two 50s. Her back half adds up to being 0.02 seconds slower today, so the first 100 was key.
Today’s swim moves Shackell up to #6 in the 15-16 American age group of all-time.
