Straight off of a several weeks-long high-altitude training camp, 18-year-old European Junior Champion Isabel Gose fired off a new German Age Record in the women’s 400m freestyle.
While competing at a one-day meet in Magdeburg on October 3rd, Gose topped the women’s 400m free field in a speedy 4:01.49. In doing so, Gose edged out the 1500m freestyle silver medalist from last year’s World Championships, Sarah Kohler, who settled for silver in 4:01.88.
Gose owns a lifetime best of 3:58.81 in this short course meters 400 free event, a time she produced in November of last year. That time also represents the current German national record in the event.
As she was just 17 at the time, her 4:01.49 here in Magdeburg checks-in as a new German Age Record for 18-year-olds to reflect her current age. The previous age record was held by Astrid Strauss at 4:02.05 and has been on the books for nearly 33 years. Additionally, this 4:01.49 mark also represents the 3rd fastest time of Gose’s career.
