Tyler Lu of the KING Aquatic Club in Federal Way, Washington has broken the 11-12 National Age Group Record in the 200 back at the February Age Group Invite in nearby Olympia on Saturday.

Lu swam a 1:53.36 that broke Destin Lasco’s 1:53.42 done in 2014. Lu’s previous best was a 1:55.43 done in December.

The comparative splits:

Tyler Lu (New Record) 26.90 28.67 29.15 28.64 1:53.36
Destin Lasco (Old Record) 26.73 29.02 29.15 28.52 1:53.42

This will likely be Lu’s last meet before aging up into the 13-14 age group.

I’m shocked when a Destin Lasco’s NAG record is broken.

He looks a small guy, how tall is he( I guess he is 5’5″ )? My son’s a friend who is 6’2″, he got 1:57.28 in 12 years old.
So Tyler is amazing! The record even is faster than most 13-14 boy swimmers 200 FREESTYLE time!

That’s a big drop. Maybe he will get close to some 13-14 records?

Assuming this was accomplished at Evergreen State College pool in Olympia, WA…not reputed to be “quick” water…amazing performance, WTG!

I used to swim with him. He doesn’t have a single weak stroke.

Tyler continues to amaze me, he is close to the 100 and 200 breast records as well but he is going to age up this month.
