Meghan Lynch with 10 & Under 100 breaststroke NAG at CAC Qualifier meet

10-year-old Meghan Lynch of Greenwich YWCA already holds 10&under National Age Group records in both short-course breaststroking distances, and this weekend she extended her record-spree to the long course format.

Lynch broke the long course 100 meter breaststroke NAG, going a 1:18.67 at the CAC Long Course Age Group Qualifier held at Wesleyan University in Connecticut this Saturday and Sunday.

On Sunday night, Lynch put up the 1:18.67, knocking off the previous mark of 1:19.11 set by current Georgia Bulldog Annie Zhu back in 2005.

Lynch can now set her sights on the 50-meter mark; she was just about a second off that record going out in this race.

Full meet results are available on Meet Mobile under “CAC Long Course Age Group Qualifier.”

Congrats! Great performance.
Not surprising. She already broke it in yards last March.
I don’t know when Miss Lynch turns 11 but if it’s after the summer she could put it at a crazy high level in the next weeks.

Turns 11 early in the winter season I believe. Amazing swimmer from a great club!

Race video please.
I want to read what the swimswam breaststroke master Psychodad thinks about her technique. :mrgreen:

PsychoDad

Bobo, Mon Cheri,

I will never comment on 10 yo’s technique. I wrote a number of times already, children younger than 12 should not be allowed to swim long course. I am tired of watching 5 and 6 yo swimming 100 meter free or 100 back. The rest of us are supposed to love it because “s/he is so cute.” I do not care, nobody does except their psycho parents.

to be fair she really doesn’t look like a 10 year old… and she is significantly faster than most 12 year olds. Obviously if a kid can’t break 1:30 in 100 free long course it was probably a waste of time to have them do it… but kids develop at different rates and she was obviously ready to be swimming long course
