During the prelim session of the 2015 Speedo Winter Junior Championships in Austin, Texas, Michael Andrew from Indie Swimming added his name the the 15-16 short course yards National Age Group Records list with an incredible time in the 200 IM. Prior to today, Andrew’s only 15-16 SCY NAG record was in the 100 butterfly.

This morning, Andrew blasted through his 200 IM prelim swim, earning the top seed in the event with a record time of 1:43.94. That is the first 15-16 swim in history under 1:44. Andrew Seliskar set the previous record in 2013 at 1:44.03.

The 20o IM record has quickly dropped in recent years. In 2012, Gunnar Bentz had the record at 1:45.17. The record has dropped more than a second in the last three years alone. Take a look at the comparative splits below:

Bentz – 2012 22.70 Fly 26.81 Back 30.53 Breast 25.13 Free 1:45.17
Seliskar – 2013 23.01 Fly 26.20 Back 29.25 Breast 25.57 Free 1:44.03
Andrew – 2015 21.84 Fly 25.89 Back 30.24 Breast 25.97 Free 1:43.94
