Michael Andrew has demolished his second National Age Group Record in as many days, swimming a 3:52.08 in his 400 yard IM.
Swimming a time trial on Saturday at the College Station, Texas sectional meet, Andrew broke the old record of 3:54.23 set by Curtis Ogren in 2010.
This follows the National Age Group Record that he swam in the 200 fly on Saturday.
He’s also swum a 1:40.38 in the 200 free and 47.79 in the 100 fly.
- Fly – 51.94
- Back – 58.40
- Breast – 1:06.32
- Free – 55.42
Andrew has has shown an impressive ability to go on record-breaking tear at a single meet, though it seems to be one meet he’ll take out a bunch of distance records, and the next a bunch of sprint records. That, perhaps, is even more impressive, because of his ability to on a dime turn his focus from sprints like the 100 fly and 100 back to distance races like the 200 fly and 400 IM. When it comes time for Andrew to start swimming big selection meets (he is vying for a spot on the Youth Olympic Games team in the next few months) this ability to change his training on a dime will allow him to tailor his schedule for the best opportunities to make big teams. That would be an invaluable skill.
