Miriam Sheehan Downs Second NAG Record This Week

Ten-year-old Miriam Sheehan has been on an absolute record spree at the 2015 Arizona Long Course Age Group State Championships, breaking the 10&under national age group record in the 50m fly saturday morning.

The youngster managed to crack the 30-second barrier in the race for the first time in her career, bettering her 30.43 seed to a 29.84.

When she touched in at 29.84, Sheehan broke her own national age-group record in the event. When she went 30.43 at the 2015 Arizona Pheonix Spring Invitational in early May, she bettered Ella Eastin’s 2007 10&under mark of 30.56.

Now, Sheehan is the 10U&under age-group record holder in both the 50 and 100m butterflies. Earlier in the meet, she broke the 100m fly record with a time of 1:08.22. That swim bettered the previous 1:08.67 mark set by Joy Jiang back in 2014.

Sheehan currently holds multiple age-group records in the 10&under category, including records in the 50 and 100m backstroke.

Saturday morning in prelims, prior to her record breaking 50m fly swim, Sheehan came dangerously close to her own 50m backstroke record of 32.30. Sheehan was a 32.42 to finish just 0.12 seconds from her best time.

Sheehan will be swimming the 50m freestyle on Sunday.

It would be interesting to compare the 10& Under times with those who went on to become champions on the national and international stage with the hot shots from this generation.

Her dad is quiet a beast too able to crank out a sub 54 at the age of 37. Can’t wait to see what she will do in the future
