Angel Martinez Breaks 100 Free/200 Fly Mexican National Records in ISL Match 4


Angel Martinez broke two Mexican National Records over the weekend while competing for the Cali Condors in Match 4 of the 2021 ISL regular season in Naples.

Martinez’s first record came in the 100 freestyle, which he achieved by way of his lead-off leg on the Cali Condor’s second 4 x 100 freestyle relay team. There, Martinez posted a 48.15 to set a new Mexican standard.

On Sunday, Martinez swam a 1:52.75 in the 200 meter butterfly, lowering his own mark, set in Match 2 of the 2021 ISL season, by half-a-second.

In Match 2, Martinez also lowered the Mexican National Record in the 200 IM (1:54.87) and and equaled the National Record in the 50 butterfly (22.89), the latter of which was previously set by Daniel Ramirez at the 2016 FINA World Championships in Windsor.

Martinez is a Tokyo 2020 Olympian and swam collegiately at Texas A&M, and 2021 is in his first season in the ISL.
