14-year-old Charlotte Crush of Lakeside Swim Team has broken yet another National Age group record at the 2023 Speedo Southern Premier meet. This time, she swam a 50.44 in the 100 back during Sunday’s finals session, taking a significant amount off her U.S. 13-14 girls’ NAG time of 51.00 set this morning in prelims to become the youngest female swimmer to break the 51-point barrier.
Crush, who will be turning 15 in a few weeks, would also rank #2 all-time in the 15-16 age group behind Olympian Claire Curzan, who holds the 15-16 NAG with a time of 50.04.
