Racer X Aquatics 12-year-old Zoe Skirboll has lowered the National Age Group record in the 50 breast even further, going 28.70 in finals of the Dolfin Elite Showcase Classic in Clearwater, Florida.
That’s a drop of four tenths from her 29.18 prelims swim, and means she’s now taken a full half-second off the former NAG record held by Olivia Anderson. Once again, Skirboll’s winning time from the 12-year-old division was faster than any time in the 11-, 13- or 14-year-old classes. She won her class by about a second and a half.

Later on in the session, Skirboll will swim the 50 free, where she’s within a second of the NAG record as well.
Skirboll should also have a shot to break the 100 breast NAG later in the week. Her lifetime-best is 1:03.88 from last month. The NAG also belongs to Anderson, who was 1:02.86 back in 2010. Skirboll currently sits #6 all-time in that event for the 11-12 age group.
