KING Aquatic Club’s Ethan Dang broke the National Age Group record for 11-12 year olds on Saturday night at the Mark Prothero Invitational in Federal Way, Washington.

The 12-year-old Dang went 2:29.01 to take just over a second off the mark set by Sean Mahoney back in 2001. The splits for Dang are below:

  • 33.89
  • 38.11
  • 38.73
  • 38.28
  • 2:29.01

That’s remarkable consistency over the final three 50s for Dang, who owns the 100 breast record one age group down.

Mahoney’s old record was 2:30.12

Full results of the meet are available on Meet Mobile under “2014 1st Annual Mark Prothero Invitational.”

There goes my chance for National Champion. 🙁


I’m talking about the 100m record, by the way.


He will definitely break the record at the PNS Long Course Champs!
