14-year-old Andrei Minakov of the Terrapins Swim Team broke the 13-14 National Age Group record in a big way today at the Stanford Futures Championships, taking down Michael Andrew‘s 54.59 by over half a second with 54.04.
Here are Minakov’s splits:
- Prelims (personal best time): 25.75, 29.18: 54.93
- Finals (NAG): 25.26, 28.78: 54.04
According to USA Swimming, Minakov has a spring birthday, so he may have a couple more chances to swim long course and lower the record.
In the women’s 200 free, 14-year-old Ella Ristic of Mission Viejo jumped from 42nd to 13th in the 13-14 all-time rankings with 2:01.72. That wasn’t fast enough to win the event, though, and Crow Canyon’s Maddie Murphy came in just ahead with 2:01.71.
On the men’s side of the 200 free, Alex Liang took the win, coming in nearly two seconds ahead of the field with 1:51.34.
Crow Canyon’s fifteen-year-old Zoie Hartman swam to 1:11.56 for the win in the women’s 100 breast, while Ripon Aquatics’ Eric Tolman took the men’s with 1:03.76.
Nikol Popov of Canyons Aquatics took the win in the women’s 100 fly with 1:01.49.
