Claire Curzan Drops 53.9 100y Fly to Break Her Own 11-12 NAG Record

Raleigh Swimming Association’s young star, Claire Curzan, has broken another NAG record. Curzan, swimming at the 2017 National Black Heritage Meet in Cary, NC, this weekend, swam a time of 53.95 in the 100 yard butterfly to re-set the record. She first broke the NAG record this past December with a 54.57 to get past Regan Smith‘s 54.73 from 2014, and went on to eclipse it again in both February and March.

Curzan’s time just slides under the 53.99 qualifying standard for the 2017 U.S. Open this August in East Meadow, NY.
