Aquazots Add National Age Group Record in 400 Medley Relay in College Station

A 6th National Age Group Record has gone down at the 2014 Speedo Championship Series meet in College Station, Texas. The Aquazot Swim Club swam a 3:18.91 in the final of the 400 yard medley relay.

The group of Daniel TranTyler Lin, Justin Hanson, and Thomas Smith combined for a 3:18.91, which crushed by two-and-a-half seconds their own 15-16 National Age Group Record in the event of 3:21.48. They add this to the 200 medley relay record that they broke in a time trial on Saturday.

The fact that the same foursome broke the record last year, and broke it again this year, makes the comparative splits particularly interesting, as it shows just how much each swimmers has improved.

Each swimmer’s splits are below, with their split from the old record-setting relay first, and from the new record-setting relay second.

Danny Tran – Backstroke – 49.28/49.30 (+.02)

Tyler Lin  – Breaststroke – 56.07/54.62 (-1.45)

Justin Hanson – Butterfly – 49.48/49.55 (+.07)

Thomas Smith – Freestyle – 46.65/45.44 (-1.21)

As the splits show, Tyler Lin and Thomas Smith were responsible for the relay’s overall improvement with massive improvements on the breaststroke and freestyle legs, respectively.

I hope you will make a good recap of that meet because apart from Aquazot and Michael Andrew, I’m not aware of anything.


They definetly should make a recap of the meet. I think SwimSwam should make more recaps of sectional meets, while they might not seem big for the larger whole, for tons of age group swimmers around the country, SCS/Sectional meets are their big taper meet for the season and these are fast meets, showing tons of age group talent.


Google and meet mobile are your friends.

Is this still Brian Pajer’s group from Irvine? Congratulations to all the swimmers!!
