Michael Andrew Swims to #2 17-18 100 Breast All-Time with 51.18


  • March 20-24, 2018
  • Lynchburg, VA (Liberty University)
  • Meet Central
  • Meet results available on Meet Mobile

Due to issues with the timing system at the ISCA meet which caused swimmers’ times to appear .39 faster than they actually were, times listed below have been adjusted to reflect USA Swimming’s decision to add .39 seconds to times swum at Wednesday prelims, Wednesday finals, Wednesday time trials, Thursday prelims, and Thursday time trials sessions. Read more about the decision here.

9 or so hours after setting a lifettime best of 51.24 in prelims, Michael Andrew lowered his time six more one-hundredths with a 51.18 at finals of the TYR Junior National Cup.

Andrew, swimming for his Race Pace Club, cut under his 51.24 from prelims to win the final by well over two seconds. The junior event is christening the brand-new pool at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Andrew is now the second-fastest in 17-18 age group history. Reece Whitley holds the NAG at 51.16. Andrew is now .14 than Cordes was as an under-18. The swim punctuates an explosion of fast age group breaststroke times, as his swim, Whitley’s and #4 Max McHugh‘s swims have all come in the past five weeks.
