U.S. National Teamer Mallory Comerford broke the Championship Record in the women’s 200 yard freestyle on Friday evening at the 2017 USA Swimming Winter National Championships. She swam a 1:41.17, which breaks the old record of 1:41.40 that was set by 5-time Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin at the 2013 championships in Knoxville, Tennessee.
That swim is Comerford’s best time of the season and the 2nd-best of her career. It trails only the 1:40.36 that she swam at last year’s NCAA Championships that won her the NCAA title in a tie with another massive name in women’s swimming – Katie Ledecky. The new time also ranks as the 12th-best performance in history.
Comerford now has the fastest time in the NCAA this season, jumping ahead of none-other-than the swimmer she tied last year at NCAAs: Katie Ledecky (1:41.60). Comerford also had the 3rd-fastest performance in the NCAA of 1:41.70 from the SMU Women’s Classic.
