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.
