Race Video: Michael Andrew 100 Yard Breast 13-14 NAG Record, 53.88

Swimming news – 100 breaststroke NAG Record reported by Braden Keith

14-year old pro swimmer Michael Andrew has re-broken his own National Age Group Record in the 100 yard breaststroke, swimming a 53.88 to win the 14 & under division at the 2014 NASA Junior National Cup. Andrew split 25.07/28.81 in the race, which clears the 54.04 that he did at the Jenks Sectional on March 7th.

Andrew became the firs 13-14 to go under 56 seconds, then the first to go under 55 seconds, and he’s now the first to go under 54 seconds in this event, which shows just how far he (and Reece Whitley) have taken this record in the last year.

Andrew now holds the 6 fastest times in this event in the history of the age group, and is 1.8 seconds clear of Reece Whitley’s second-ranked 55.61.

He wasn’t the fastest swimmer overall at this meet in the event, Texas-bound high school senior Austin Temple was a 52.87 in the 16 & up division. That time is within a tenth of what Texas’ breaststroker split on their 400 medley relay at NCAA’s on Thursday.

BEAST!! Would love to start seeing some underwater footage

I feel like this kid’s been 14 for at least a couple years now.

That time is just unreal. He would walk on to any D1 program in the country today; already has a host of B standards and rapidly moving down. The true test begins with the LCM season; which I am sure will see some records within a few weeks broken.

By Now he got some US record… but still no WR record for any race of 14 years old..

at 15 some times to beat would be off to charts.. It is the age Thorpe Phelps and Gyurta exploded.. many of them WR at their time..

It was also before the plastic, full body suits…

In fact, ALL of Thorpe’s 15-16 age records were swum in BRIEFS.
