Showing off an impeccable sprint versatility is 16-year-old Anthony Grimm of the Mason Makos. On day 3 of the NCSA Spring Junior National meet, Grimm went 2-for-2 victories in the 50 breast and the 50 fly.
In the 50 breast, Grimm outshined top-breaststroke college recruits Joshua Matheny and William Myhre for the second time with a 24.14. Later in the meet, Grimm whipped out a 20.73 in the 50 fly. Throughout the entire race, Grimm took less than 10 strokes, taking 4 off the start and 5 off the turn. Grimm now has wins in the 50 breast, 100 breast (52.51), and 50 fly this meet.
Just before Grimm swam, 12-year-old Levenia Sim of TNT Swimming quietly swam in the D-final of the 50 fly to make girls 11-12 history. Her time of 24.90 puts her as the 5th-fastest ever 50 fly swam in the 11-12 age group.
