Reacting to Summer McIntosh’s 2:06.89 200 IM World Jr Record


Summer McIntosh is continuing her siege on Canadian and world Jr records, dropping a 2:06.89 200 IM for her 2nd PB in as many events at Canadian trials. This swim makes her the #4 performer all-time, and is faster than the winning time at the 2022 World Champs and 2020 Olympic Games.

If McIntosh retires at age 16 (like Gould) and then as a Canadian she moves from U.S. to Australia (like Caulkins), would that make her an ex-pat ex-pat?

nice to have world junior records that are ratified AND are fastest of all time. If she PB’s in the 200 free it’s instant ratification and the 400im I hope she PB’s since she is already less than 2 tenths away from Ye Shiwen’s time. It would be crazy if she beat Liuyang’s 2:04.72 in the 200 fly, I feel like after all this swimming fast she is gonna be tired.

by the new wjr age group rules, the 200 fly record should be jiao’s 2:04.50 from 2009 worlds, but that is still well within reach

Two other targets for Friday night are:

* Schipper’s Commonwealth Record: 2.03.41

* Zhang’s textile best from Tokyo: 2.03.86

400 IM WR is the most likely.
