Just Another Day At The Office: Michael Andrew Breaks 200 IM NAG Record

Michael Andrew was very aggressive with his morning swim, putting him in the middle of the pool for tonight’s finals. He swam the third fastest time of the morning during prelims and missed his own NAG Record by .20 seconds. Tonight, Michael Andrew put up a fight, finishing in fourth place in the 200 IM. He improved his National Age Group record by exactly one second, touching the wall 1.20 seconds faster than this morning, at 2:04.13.

His splits were:

  • 26.15 (26.15)
  • 31.65 (57.80)
  • 36.88 (1:34.68)
  • 29.45 (2:04.13)

When Phelps held this record as a 13-14 year old, he was never under 2:06.

Michael Andrew still has until April 18th to take on the rest of the 13-14 National Age Group Record Book.

IMO, this record is the most impressive of all Michael Andrew’s records, and I believe it is also the WR for 14 yo.

BTW, Swimswam, don’t you have latest photos of MA from this meet to use instead of the old photo above?
