Race Video: 2014 NAIA Nationals, 100 Backstroke, Ramirez Breaks Record, 46.28

Oklahoma Baptist junior Daniel Ramirez, originally from Hermosillo, Mexico, broke the meet record in the 100 back for the second year in a row at the 2014 NAIA National Championships. Last year he went 47.61 to claim the title and the record; this year he dropped another 1.3 seconds to reset the mark at 46.28.

Ramirez looked strong from the outset and used his underwater strength off all four walls to gain an edge over the rest of the field. This was his second meet record of the night; he had already won the 100 fly in a record-breaking 46.13.
