Dylan Carter Crushes Trinidad & Tobago National Record in 400 Free

Dylan Carter, after some big swims at the USA Swimming Winter National Championships last weekend, rushed home to Trinidad & Tobago, of which he represents internationally, for the country’s End of Year Short Course Trials, and on Friday broke a National Record.

Carter ended the night on Wednesday with a 3:50.05 in the 400 Short Course Meters Freestyle. That broke both the 15-17 record held by Josh Romany (3:58.41), as well as the National Record set by 2000 Olympian Sebastien Paddington back in 1996 (3:55.89).

Carter has spent the semester training with the USC Trojans, and his spike in results since coming to the United States in 2012 hasn’t slowed down.

He and Josh had a couple of good sessions this week. This morning they ended a 2400m set with a 200 where they both went 1:54’s scm.


Dylan does not look 17 in any way, shape or form.

You could say about most of the HS juniors/seniors at Juniors. When you see him up close and in person, he’s no different than his peers.
