McIntosh Knocks 200 Fly Canadian 11-12 NAG Record Down To 2:15.24


Just like she did in the 400 IM, Summer McIntosh broke the girls 11-12 Canadian Age Group Record in the 200 fly in both prelims and finals at the 2019 Canadian Swimming Trials.

In the heats she put up a time of 2:16.02, lowering the 2:17.29 mark she set two months ago at the Ontario Provincial Championships.

Tonight in the final, she took off eight more-tenths to bring the mark down to 2:15.24, incredibly placing fifth overall at just 12 years of age.

She was out slightly slower than the morning at the halfway mark, but made up a full 1.2 seconds on the last 50 as she closed in 34.30. A look at the splits below:

Prelims Final
30.67 31.08
34.65 (1:05.32) 1:05.71 (34.63)
1:40.52 (35.20) 1:40.94 (35.23)
2:16.02 (35.50) 2:15.24 (34.30)

When the Etobicoke Swim Club member first broke the record, she knocked over two seconds off the 2016 record of 2:19.86 set by Joy Jiang. In total, she’s knocked it down 4.62 seconds in two months.

Mary-Sophie Harvey won the event in a time of 2:11.71, out-touching Danielle Hanus (2:11.79). Harvey was the only swimmer in the field to close faster than McIntosh on the last 50 (34.12).

When Summer gets stronger and gets the front end speed she is going to be scary fast! To me it was the most impressive swim of trials
