Sarasota Tsunami 13-14 Boys Swipe Second NAG Relay Record of the Weekend

2019 FLORIDA SWIMMING SUMMER AGE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS

  • July 18th-21st, 2019
  • Rosen YMCA Aquatic Center, Orlando, Florida
  • Results on Meet Mobile: “2019 Summer Age Group Championships”

After erasing Irvine NOVAquatics’ 4×200 free relay 13-14 NAG record on Thursday, the Sarasota Tsunami swiped Dynamo Swim Club’s record in the 4×100 medley relay last night.

Evan KeoghLuis Junquiera, and Dimiter Zafirov returned from the 4×200 relay, joined by Liam Heary. Keogh swam back, Heary breast, Zafirov fly, and Junquiera free– currently, splits are incorrect on Meet Mobile. The old relay was a 4:02.59, from Ian Grum, Liam Bell, Mark Rotolo, and Cam Auerbach from 2015. Grum is now an incoming freshman at Georgia, while Auerbach and Bell are incoming at the University of Alabama. Last night, the Tsunami boys combined for a 4:00.78, almost two seconds quicker.

In that session, Zafirov swam to a 1:54.54 in the 200 free to break the Florida LSC record and shoot to the #1 spot in the country for 14-year-olds. Keogh went on to break the meet record in the 400 IM, clocking a 4:36.81 to touch second behind TBAC’s Andrew Taylor, who was 4:36.24. Both were under the old LSC record, too.

Nice swim. I wonder what suit manufacturer they are sponsored by? I see two Speedo’s, one Mizuno, and one TYR.

The team is sponsored by Speedo but only the National Team is provided any outfitting. Under Jr. Nats, the kid’s (Parents) buy their tech suits.
