Dare Rose Posts #3 Time in 13-14 History in 400 Free – 3:59.02


Proving that he’s not just a butterflier, age group standout Dare Rose of Scarlet Aquatics has soared up to #3 in the 13-14 rankings for the 400 freestyle.

Winning tonight’s C final at the 2017 U.S. Junior Nationals, Rose posted a time of 3:59.02, his first time under the four minute barrier. Only Evan Pinion and Michael Phelps have been faster in 13-14 history.

Who is his coach? This kid is really good.

Bibog, the head coach at Scarlet Aquatics is Mohamed Abdelaal.

Bobo is correct. Scarlet is a multi-site program like NCAP, SWIMMAC etc. Mo is the head coach of Dare’s site.


I believe he is coached by Eddie Reese.
