Miguel De Lara Takes Down Mexican Record in 200 Breast

2017 ARENA PRO SWIM SERIES – SANTA CLARA

Mexican breastsroker Miguel De Lara, who trains with the Auburn postgrad group, made history for his country last weekend at the 2017 Arena Pro Swim Series stop in Santa Clara. In the 200 breast final, De Lara seta new Mexican National Record, narrowly missing the podium with a 2:12.25.

That took over a half second off the former record, which stood at a 2:12.94 done by Texas A&M’s Mauro Castillo Luna at the 2017 Arena Pro Swim Series stop in Atlanta. There are still months left in the season, so we could see the swimmers battling back-and-forth for the record throughout the summer.
