Michael Andrew Breaks 3rd Different NAG Record in Austin with 100 Breaststroke Bullet

  11 Braden Keith | January 19th, 2014 | Club, News

Michael Andrew, a P2 Life Athlete has had no trouble turning his short course success into long course success in Austin, breaking the 13-14 boys’ National Age Group Record in his 3rd different event of the meet.

The latest swim on Sunday came in the 100 meter breaststroke, where Andrew split a 1:03.83. That creamed the old record of 1:04.74 set by Anthony Robinson back in 1994 (Robinson would go on to become the first high school swimmer under 20 seconds in the 50 yard freestyle).

Andrew split this race 30.28-33.55 to win the B Final, which is pretty similar to how his B-Final competitors, generally much older, spread their swims out. Andrew won that B-Final by just a hair over Nick Kostiuk (1:03.94).

Earlier in the meet, Andrew tied, then broke, his own 50 free National Age Group Record, and he also beat Benjamin Ho’s mark in the 100 back by .01 seconds. This was the most convincing of his record-breaking swims so far, though he’s still got two races to go on Sunday.

Does anyone know when his birthday officially is?

All of the mega volume coaches out there have to be so pissed..they won’t say it publicly but boy I bet they’re mad. The SCY USRPT superstar is now taking it to the big boy pool once again. Proof that “buy in” trumps “training plans” as we’ve proven now there is more than one way to skin the cat, so to speak.

If we want to watch again that race outside of USA, how do we do?
Big thanks to USA swimming for the free live stream. It’s very nice.
But red card to USA swimming for not posting the videos of finals on youtube anymore as they did it for every Grand Prix meet in the past years.
Mel Stewart, please, spread the word. Thank you.

Couldn’t agree more. I really can’t be bothered to wait for 2 a.m. to watch the livestream.
