In the first night of finals at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, 16-year-old Cassidy Bayer of Nation’s Capital Swim Club swam 58.11 in the women’s 100 fly to score the second-fastest time in American history for a 15-16 year old woman.
This is especially notable because Bayer came within .12 of Mary T. Meagher‘s national age group record which has stood since 1981.
Tomorrow, Bayer will attack the final, with a chance to take down the 35-year-old mark.
She is ranked fourth going into the final tomorrow, coming in behind Sarah Gibson (58.02), Kelsi Worrell (57.12), and Dana Vollmer (56.90).
Barring something crazy, Worrell and Vollmer should be in a league of their own tomorrow night, Bayer could certainly challenge Gibson for the third place spot in the finals of the event.
