After swimming his Olympic Trials cut in the 200 back earlier this summer, Keaton Jones broke a National Age Group Record in his final meet before aging up.
14-year-old Keaton Jones narrowly missed the boys 13-14 NAG in the 200 backstroke in Arizona, clocking a time of 2:01.20.
Caitlin Brooks swam a monster lifetime best in the 200 back and is the 11th-fastest US woman this year to close the Gainesville Sectionals.
The old record was set by Josh Zuchowski in 2017.
The final morning of the 2019 Pro Swim Series – Richmond meet will feature heats of the 200 IM, 200 back, 50 breast, and 100 free, as well as the early heats of the 1500 free.
Tonight, the finals of the 200 fly, 50 free, 100 back, 200 breast, 50 fly, and 400 free will be contested. Caeleb Dressel is among the highlight swimmers as he could go another 2-for-2 with his 50 free and 50 fly swims.
14 year-old Josh Zuchowski lowered the national age group record in the 100 back tonight at the 2019 Pro Swim Series – Richmond stop.
Curzan also, unofficially, swam the fastest-ever 50 fly by a 13-14 year old. Her swim would have been a World Record as recently as 1999.
