Race Video: Michael Andrew 50 Yard Freestyle 13-14 NAG Record, 19.85

Michael Andrew 50 Yard Freestyle NAG Record – Reported by Braden Keith

Michael Andrew swam a 19.85 in the 50 yard free on Saturday night at the Jenks Sectional in Oklahoma, breaking the National Age Group Record that seems to, ironically, have been the hardest for him to get at the 13-14 level (among his wheelhouse events, at least).

That broke the 20.02 that Arizonan Ryan Hoffer swam in 2013 and makes Andrew the youngest swimmer ever under 20 seconds in the event. Hoffer now holds the National Age Group Record for 15-16′s already at a 19.54, but Andrew’s not far off of that time either.

Thank you for the video.
We can hear a very happy girl. MA’s sister? MA’s mother?
The dinosaurs are also back at the 39th second of the video for the slow motion. 🙂


Hi Bobo. I thought we agreed it wasn’t dinosaurs, but God. Space-time. Unfolding. To watch Michael. No? Although, if you insist, I will begin picturing dinosaurs, starting with my favorite: Petrie the pteranodon. 🙂
