- Day 4 prelims recap
After swimming the second-fastest 50 yard free ever done by a 15-year old on Thursday at the 2016 USA Swimming Winter Nationals, Jack Dolan of the Rockwood Swim Club has done the same in the 100 yard free.
Dolan swam a 43.61 to qualify 4th into Saturday evening’s final. That ranks him 4th all-time among 15-16s, and second all-time among 15 year olds, behind only a 43.13 done by Ryan Hoffer at the 2013 Winter Juniors. Dolan’s previous best time was a 45.13 from March.
Dolan is the 3rd 15-16 to swim a 43.6 this year alone. Michael Andrew swam a 43.62 earlier this year and Drew Kibler swam a 43.69.
Comparative Splits to Hoffer’s 43.13:
- Hoffer 2013: 20.84/22.29 = 43.13
- Dolan 2016: 21.21/22.40 = 43.63
Dolan was able to improve his 50 from prelims to finals, and so could still take a run at Hoffer’s time in finals.
Fastest All-Time 15-16s:
- Ryan Hoffer, 42.67, 2014
- Caeleb Dressel, 43.29, 2012
- Darius Merke, 43.52, 2015
- Jack Dolan, 43.63, 2016
- Michael Andrew, 43.62, 2016
