Audrey Derivaux– 2024 Meet of Champions Alex Walsh– 2015 Winter Juniors
Fly 24.62 25.93
Back 28.08 28.81
Breast 35.23 34.15
Free 27.8 27.31
Final Time 1:55.73 1:56.20

The biggest difference was Derivaux’s first 50 as she was over a second faster out on the butterfly leg and was over half a second faster on backstroke.

Walsh’s record stood since December 2015 as she swam the time to win the event at Winter Juniors- East.

This is Derivaux’s second 13-14 SCY NAG record as she swam a 1:54.33 200 butterfly earlier this year to break Tess Howley‘s old NAG record of a 1:55.29. At the same meet, Derivaux just missed Walsh’s 200 IM record as she swam a 1:56.34, her personal best coming into the Meet of Champions.

Derivaux also swam a best time in the 500 free at the Meet of Champions as she touched in a 4:44.10 in prelims faster than her old personal best of a 4:47.00 from mid-February. She has dropped almost six seconds in the event over the last year.
