RACE VIDEO: Destin Lasco Breaks National Age Group Record in 200 Back

12-year old Destin Lasco broke the National Age Group Record in the 200 yard backstroke on Friday night, and thanks to his coach Dimitar Petrov, above is a video of his swim.

What’s really impressive about Lasco is how relaxed he looks. That relaxed look is what we always hear the great backstrokers have, but it isn’t until you see it up close and personal, it’s hard to really comprehend just how fast some of these guys can go with what looks like such little effort.
