14-year-old Lleyton Plattel of California swim club Pleasanton Seahawks had an outstanding swim in the mile this afternoon, becoming the 2nd-best performer ever in the 13-14 age group. He went 15:35.36, taking a healthy 11-plus seconds off of his previous best time.
The NAG record is from all the way back in 1976, set by Jesse Vassallo at 15:31.03. As of today, only four 13-14 boys have ever broken 15:40 in this event– Vassallo, Plattel, Andrew Abruzzo, and the one and only Michael Phelps.

Plattel, at the time of this posting, is in 6th place with three heats of the men’s 1500 down. The 14-year-old, one of (if not THE) youngest boys competing here in Indy, was incredibly consistent across his splits– he stayed at 31-mids until about the 1100 mark, then dropped down to hold 31-lows before finishing off with a 1:00-low in the last 100.
Plattel will also swim the 400 and 800 freestyles later on in this meet.
