Allie Raab Swims 4th Fastest U.S. 15-16 100 Breast in Omaha


In semifinal two of the women’s 100 breaststroke at the Olympic Trials, 16-year-old Allie Raab swam a time of 1:08.12 to move up to #4 all-time in the 15-16 age group.

U.S. 15-16 100 Breast All-Time Top 5 

  1. Megan Jendrick 1:07.05
  2. Mara Debnekoff 1:07.55
  3. Rachel Leidel 1:07.91
  4. Allie Raab 1:08.12
  5. Anita Nall 1:08.17

Raab was a 1:08.54 this morning, which was in itself a best time. She came in to the meet with a best of 1:09.08.

She wasn’t quick enough to make it to the final, but she did finish 11th overall.

She is now just over a second off of the NAG record, which was set in 2000 by Megan Jendrick.

Raab still has another race to contest in this meet– she’s in the women’s 200 breast, where she’s posted a best time of 2:29.86 which is the 16th-fastest time all-time in the 15-16 age group. Anita Nall holds the NAG record in that with a 2:25.35 from all the way back in 1992.

Raab could certainly crack the top 8 in these rankings; 8th belongs to the 200 breast American record holder and former world record holder Rebecca Soni at 2:29.08.

Great job Allie and I love the taco sox and also the shoes! She’s in great company. I’m surprised Amanda Beard isn’t even on that list!! She’s got a bright future ahead of her.
