Fourteen-year-old Rye Ulett became the third 13-14 girl in history to break 2:10 in the 200 backstroke Thursday night at the 2019 U.S. National Championships.
Ulett, representing Dynamo Swim Club, went 2:09.70, splitting 30.58/33.00/33.10/33.02. Her best time prior to this meet was 2:13.16, which she swam in late July 2018. She went 2:11.98 in prelims Thursday morning before leaving that time in the dust in finals.
Missy Franklin‘s 13-14 national age group record from 2009 stands at 2:09.16, and she was the first and only girl to break 2:20 until today.

Update: This article originally listed Nora Mirabal as owning a 2:09.27 swim from 2016, as it is listed on USA Swimming’s 13-14 rankings. That swim, however, appears to be entered in error.
Ulett is also entered in the 100 fly, 100 back and 200 IM later in the meet.
