Nick Adcock Breaks American Record in S10 50 Yard Fly

Nick Adcock has broke the American Record in the 50 yard fly for S10s. At the CSH/Tri-State Regional on March 4th, Adcock split a 27.21 en route to a 1:01.29 finishing time. That improved upon the time pf 27.44 done in January of this year by Tyler Dutcher as part of a 12-record run by the U.S. Paralympic resident team.

Adcock is a 24-year old swimmer representing Lower Moreland Swimming & Diving. He swam collegiately at Penn State Altoona, where he finished his career in the  spring of 2015.

At the meet, specifically designated for para-swimmers, Adcock just missed the record in his flat-start 50, where he touched in 27.55. Later in the day, though, he got it en route to an overall 100 yard time of 1:01.29. The record in the S10 100 yard fly is a 51.34 done by Ian Silverman in 2013.

Adcock also swam 55.15 in the 100 free and 1:03.25 in the 100 back in Saturday’s meet.

Ian Silverman’s time divided in half is a 25.67. Would he not have the record…?
