2020 PRO SWIM SERIES – DES MOINES
18-year old Regan Smith, swimming on a short turnaround after racing the 200 back earlier in the session, re-broke her own National Age Group Record in the 100 fly on Friday evening.
Smith swam a 57.34 in the final of the women’s 100 fly, finishing .01 seconds behind a season-best time from Kelsi Worrell. That improved upon her old 17-18 National Age Group Record of 57.75. That in turn broke her own record of 57.86 set in January at the Knoxville Pro Swim.
