Anna Moesch Strikes Again: Clocks 47.76 100 Free, Rising to #4 All-Time 15-16


Capping off an absolutely phenomenal week, Greater Somerset County Y 16-year-old Anna Moesch won the women’s 100 free tonight at YMCA Nationals. Moesch swam a 47.76, clipping her previous best time of 47.90, which she swam at the 2021 Speedo Winter Junior Championships East this past December. Despite the slim drop from her personal best, Moesch managed to move up from #6 to #4 all-time in the 15-16 girls age group.

She comes in just ahead of Dagny Knutson, and just 0.03 seconds behind Simone Manuel, who is #3 all-time in the age group. Claire Curzan holds the 15-16 NAG at 47.23. Here is the newly updated all-time top 10 in the girls 15-16 SCY 100 free:

Moesch swam out of her mind this week in Greensboro. In addition to moving up to #4 all-time in the 15-16 100 free, Moesch swam a 21.97 in the 50 free, also ranking her 4th in the age group, and 1:44.10 in the 200 free, tying her for 7th all-time in the age group. On top of those swims, Moesch swam a massive personal best in the 200 IM, breaking 2:00 for the first time in her career. She also posted stunning relay splits of 21.46 on the anchor of the 200 medley relay and 47.02 on the anchor of the 400 medley relay.

Great week for her.
She looks pretty tall on the photo.
Let’s see now what she has in store in long course where legends are made.
She has PB of 55.69 in the 100 free LCM from last June.
Since then she has improved a lot her best time in SCY.
So she must able to go 54 low this summer.
And making the olympic team at least in the 4X100 free relay in 2024 looks like a plausible goal.
