It’s an incredibly fast-rising class of junior boys – and we have a neck-and-neck competition for the #1 overall swimming recruit in the class.
Day 4 of Speedo Winter Junior Championships – East will feature prelims of 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, and 200 fly.
University of Florida commit is scheduled to swim 3 races on Friday after missing the 50 free on Thursday, where he was the #1 seed.
Bustos is the first known U.S.-based verbal commit for the class of 2025 on the boys’ side. He was an A-finalist in the 100 fly and 200 IM at Speedo Juniors.
Day 5 finals include the women’s and men’s 200 IM, women’s 1500 freestyle, women’s and men’s 50 freestyle, men’s 800 freestyle, and the 400 medley relays.
After a bunch of classes in a row loaded with 200 freestylers, 2021 is decidedly sprintier, led by a pair of Swiss Army Knife multi-stroke sprinters.
Vance took a tenth off of his old best time and won the race by a considerable margin.
Only Simone Manuel and Abbey Weitzeil have been faster than Douglass in the 17-18 age group.
Douglass again set a new personal best with her 100 fly win.
That swim was a near three-second drop for Douglass from her old best time.
