Upper Mainline’s Brendan Burns moved up from the #4 to #2 15-16 all-time performer in the 100 back at YMCA Nationals Thursday night.
The 16-year-old split 22.37/23.87 for a final time of 46.24, over two seconds ahead of second-place finisher Justin Fleagle (48.80), and almost seven tenths faster than his previous best of 46.93. His time is also a new YMCA national record, breaking Austin Katz‘s former record of 47.06, set exactly a year ago today.
Burns now sits only behind Destin Lasco, who went 45.93 on March 30th. Both are now faster than current American record holder Ryan Murphy was at their age. Lasco remains the only 15-16 year-old ever under :46, and he and Burns are the only ever under 46.65.
Burns would have a chance to go even faster Saturday if he leads off the 400 medley relay.
