Baylor’s Robert Freeman breaks 13-14 NAG record with 1:53.31 in long course 200 free

The first National Age Group record of Thursday night’s session at the NCSA Junior Nationals came courtesy of 14-year-old Robert “Trey” Freeman.

Swimming from the C final, Freeman blasted a 1:53.31 that smashed 2.6 seconds off his previous lifetime-best to take 18th overall. That moves his long course time much more on par with his short course best, which was 1:38.9 prior to today and was lowered to 1:38.82 at this morning’s short course prelims.

Freeman’s time also bests the 13-14 National Age Group (NAG) record set in 2009 by Tom Kremer. Kremer, now a standout for Stanford University, went 1:53.52 to originally set that record.

Freeman had a great closing burst to take down that record, splitting 28.10 over the final 50 meters. His full splits were 26.66/29.18/29.37/28.10.
