After breaking the 400 meter IM 11-12 National Age Group Record on Friday by nearly 6 seconds, the record in Saturday’s 200 IM seemed almost inevitable for Joshua Zuchowski of Flood Aquatics. Swimming again in prelims at the Plantation, Florida Sectionals meet, Zuchowski did just that, swimming a 2:14.93 to qualify 15th in a field of 83 swimmers – the rest of whom were all teenagers-and-up.
This time, the record-breaking was a much narrower margin – he slid four-tenths of a second under Destin Lasco‘s 2014 record of 2:15.33. Lasco also previously held the 400 IM record that Zuchowski broke on Friday.

The pacing differences between the two are very similar to the 400 IM, with Zuchowski’s biggest advantage being the breaststroke and Lasco’s being the backstroke. Lasco also had a better freestyle split in both distances.
Zuchowski also swam prelims of the 100 back (1:02.91) and the 50 breast (33.13). He scratched finals of the 100 back, but will swim both the 200 IM and the 50 breaststroke in the evening session.
