16-year old Carson Foster, the younger of the Foster brothers competing at and dominating this week’s Winter Junior Championships – East, has jumped to #2 on the all-time rankings in the 15-16 boys’ 200 yard backstroke.
Foster won the race in 1:41.66, which leaves him behind only the defending Olympic champion Ryan Murphy on the all-time age group list. Murphy swam his time at the unified Short Course Junior National Championships in 2011, though he lost to his future teammate Jacob Pebley (1:40.79) in that race.
Foster’s best time coming into the meet was a 1:44.30, which he’s now cut by a second-and-a-half this weekend.
Destin Lasco finished 2nd in the race in 1:41.97, which ranks him 4th all-time in the age group.
Carson has also won the 200 IM ( 1:43.79), to rank 2nd all-time among 15-16s behind Michael Andrew; placed 3rd in the 100 back (47.15) to tie for 6th in the age group’s history; and swam a 3:44.16 in the 400 IM, which leaves him behind just Michael Phelps on that list.
