Greater Somerset Valley YMCA’s Matt Fallon moved to #2 all-time in USA Swimming’s 17-18 200 breast ranks with a 2:10.13 in heats of the Olympic Trials.
Fallon dropped more than a full second from his best, moving from #7 in age group history up to the #2 spot. He’s now just four-tenths of a second behind the National Age Group (NAG) record with another swim coming in tonight’s semifinals.

Fallon qualified first this morning in a veteran-heavy field of 200 breaststrokers. Just four of the 49 swimmers in this morning’s heats are 18-and-unders. All four of those swimmers (Fallon, Josh Matheny, Jakob Frick, Adam Fusti-Molnar) are 18.
Fallon will lead tonight’s semifinals in the event, and could get a third swim if he finishes in the top 8 tonight. Fallon is within half a second of the NAG record – and he’ll swim directly against NAG record-holder Daniel Roy in this event. Roy, now 21, qualified 4th in heats this morning and will swim in the first semifinal, just before Fallon leads the second semi.
Fallon’s time also makes him the #17 U.S. performer of any age in this event. He passes the great Mike Barrowman, who won Olympic gold and set a new world record of 2:10.16 at the 1992 Olympic Games.
