16-year old Gianluca Urlando has re-broken his own National Age Group Record in the 100 yard fly, swimming a 45.62 in the final on Friday at the Winter Junior – West Championships. That undercut his own record of 54.97 from prelims, which in turn undercut the old record of 46.23 done by Michael Andrew.
|1st 50||2nd 50||Final Time|
|Urlando||2018 WJr West Finals||21.42||24.20||45.62|
|Urlando||2018 WJr West Prelims||21.51||24.46||45.97|
|Andrew||2016 WJr West Finals||21.30||24.93||46.23|
Not surprisingly, Urlando, the 200 meter specialist, closes his 100 fly like a rocket. Only one other swimmer in Friday’s final, for example, was even sub-25 on the last 50 yards – and that was Ethan Hu in 24.54.
Speaking of Hu, between Urlando, Hu (16), and 3rd-place finisher Aiden Hayes (15), the top 3 finishers were all 15-16s. Urlando moves to #1 all-time in the age group with his time; Hu’s 46.25 takes him to a tie-for-3rd all-time with Camden Murphy; and Hayes’ 46.96 moves him to 7th all-time in the age group. Hayes continues his status as the fastest 15-year old in the history of this event as well.
