During the day 4 prelims session at the US Olympic Trials, several swimmers moved up the all-time 100 freestyle rankings in the 17-18 age group, including Jack Alexy, who set a new NAG in the event.
Swimming out of heat 6, the 18 year-old Alexy from the Greater Somerset YMCA threw down a time of 48.69, demolishing his personal best of 49.31. Alexy’s time also took down Caeleb Dressel’s National Age Group Record of 48.78 that was set back in 2015.

Compared to Dressel, Alexy was out .3 faster at the 50 mark. However, Alexy fell off slightly on the back half as Dressel closed in 25.45, while Alexy closed in 25.77.
Alexy will have a chance to improve his record during the semi-finals, as he qualified 9th overall out of prelims.
18-year-old Arsenio Bustos also moved up the all-time rankings in the event. Bustos posted a personal best of 49.03 this morning to move up to #4 all-time in 17-18 age group history, surpassing Olympic legend Michael Phelps in the process.
Like Alexy, Bustos also earned a second swim in the event, and will contest the semi-finals tonight after placing 13th overall in prelims.
Tim Connery added his name on the all-time list as well, posting a time of 49.94 to move up to #32 all-time in the 17-18 age group.
