10-year old Ronald Dalmacio of Rose Bowl Aquatics Swim Team lowered his own National Age Group Record in the boys’ 10-and-under 100 yard back on Saturday at 2015 Far Westerns Championships, going 58.62.
Dalmacio first broke Destin Lasco’s 2012 mark of 59.81 in February at the Southern California Swimming Club Championships. He went just under with 59.76 in prelims, then took another .71 off in finals. This weekend marks the third time this year he has eclipsed Lasco’s NAG record, and now he has re-written the books by 1.2 seconds.
|Lasco, 2012||29.13/30.68 = 59.81|
|Dalmacio, February 2015 (prelims)||29.56/30.20 = 59.76|
|Dalmacio, February 2015 (finals)||29.29/29.76 = 59.05|
|Dalmacio, April 2015 (finals)||28.67/29.95 = 58.62|
Dalmacio seems to have been working on his up-front speed in the two months since he first broke the record; he was out nearly a second faster than his first record, and home .25 better.
