Thomas Heilman: “These races I’ve had are almost beyond my expectations”

2021 US OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS

Reported by Braden Keith.

14-year old Thomas Heilman, swimming about 25 minutes after his 100 fly National Age Group Record, was 4th in the final of the 200 free in 1:51.47. That’s slightly slower than his 1:51.27 13-14 US record in prelims and is the first swim of his meet where he hasn’t broken a National Age Group Record.
