Michael Andrew Breaks Ryan Hoffer’s National Age Group Record at OKC Pro-Am Time Trials

14-year old Michael Andrew has broken the National Age Group Record in the 100 yard freestyle for 13-14 boys on Saturday at the Chesapeake Swim Club Pro-Am Elite Meet in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

That means that in the course of 9 days, Andrew has broken all four 100 yard National Age Group Records.

His latest swim, which was done in an afternoon time trials, was a 44.73 in the 100 yard freestyle. That cleared the 44.81 that Ryan Hoffer of the Scottsdale Aquatic Club did last year, with Hoffer having now moved on to destroying the sprint freestyle records for the 15-16 age group.

This swim beats Andrew’s previous lifetime best of 44.85 that he swam at Winter Juniors to just miss Hoffer’s record. Andrew only snuck into the C-Final at Juniors to get that second swim thanks to scratches, as he was 25th in prelims.

Below is a listing of the other three records that Andrew swam last week. As always, his newest will have to be ratified by USA Swimming before it becomes official.
