Indie Swimming’s Michael Andrew officially added his eleventh short course yards National Age Group record to the current books with a quick 46.36 in the 100 yard butterfly. He also posted the second fastest time in history in the men’s 15-16 100 breaststroke. He is competing at the Club North Swimming Adidas Sprint Classic in Galdstone, MO.

The previous record was set at the 2014 US Junior National Championships by Ryan Hoffer at 46.42. Prior to Hoffer breaking Alex Valente‘s NAG record last year, Andrew’s 13-14 100 butterfly NAG Record of 46.95 was actually faster than the 15-16 NAG record at the time. Hoffer took a good chunk off of Valente’s record time of 46.99, but it wasn’t out of reach for Andrew today, although their two swims were nearly identical.

Take a look at their comparative splits below:

  • Andrew 2015: 46.36
    • 21.63
    • 24.73
  • Hoffer 2014: 46.42
    • 21.70
    • 24.72

Andrew also put up the second fastest 15-16 time in the 100 breaststroke, posting a final time of 53.09. Carsten Vissering currently holds the NAG record at 52.83. His previous best time was seventh on the all time list at 54.34.

His previous best was actually 53.8 from the NAG marathon/rampage he went on right before he turned 15.
