14-year old Scarlet Aquatics swimmer Dare Rose has sneaked under the 13-14 National Age Group Record in the 200 meter free. Swimming in Friday’s C-Final at the 2017 Speedo Junior Nationals, Rose swam 1:53.30.
After swimming 1:53.39 in prelims to just miss the record, Rose dropped .08 seconds to clip a tie between Trey Freeman and Aldan Johnson, who both swam 1:53.31 in 2015.
Rose’s best time coming into the meet was a 1:54.25 from March, which he’s improved three times this week (once on a relay, and twice on Friday in the individual event).
In Rose’s finals swim, he opened up a touch faster, and while it cost him some on the third 50, he recovered with a great closing length to get the record – finishing three-tenths better than he did in the morning.
- Dare Rose prelims – 26.82/28.72/28.74/29.11 = 1:53.39
- Dare Rose finals – 26.51/28.75/29.23/28.81 = 1:53.30
This is Rose’s 2nd National Age Group Record. He also holds the 11-12 record in the 200 long course fly with a 2:11.85 swum in 2015.
the age group championships in new jersey must be fun to watch, throw in names like Destin Lasco, Matthew Fallon, Dare Rose, and Jack Alexy, you have to have some kind of good races that are going down in this territory.

Cole Pratt set Canadian NAG in 200 Free as well. Less than a second behind this swim ^^
Omg how exciting he is the one to watch
I have seen him at local meets in New Jersey and it’s incredible to see how he can beat kids that could be 4-5 years older than him. It’s unreal.
Crikey! And I’m talking about 11-12 2.11 for the 200m fly
For real. I’m more blown away by that one!
