This past weekend saw an all-out assault on USA Swimming’s National Age Group record books, with records falling at both the East and West Winter Junior Championships, plus the Nation’s Capital Swim Club Invite in Maryland.
Now we’re asking you, the SwimSwam reader, to vote on which NAG record of the weekend was most impressive in our latest A3 Performance Poll.
With the sheer number of records, we weren’t able to include all of them as individual poll options – several are rolled into the “other” designation. If you feel strongly about one of the “other” selections, leave your reasoning in the comments section, and we’ll analyze both the poll and the comments in our “SwimSwam Pulse” segment when we close the poll.
Important Note: We are not including Katie Ledecky‘s 8:59.65 in the 1000 free as one of the options, classifying that swim as an overall American record rather than just a NAG (though it was the National Age Group record for the 17-18s). As exciting as it might be to see Ledecky’s swim (11 seconds faster than anyone of any age in the history of swimming) sweep nearly all the votes, it’ll make for more interesting poll results to pit only the NAG records that weren’t also American records against one another.
