Vinny Marciano clips .02 off of Michael Andrew’s 50 fly NAG at NASA Showcase

12-year-old Vinny Marciano just keeps charging at the NASA Showcase Classic. On the final night, Marciano took down his fifth National Age Group record of the meet, going 23.63 to just barely sneak under the NAG record for 11-12s held by Michael Andrew.

After breaking Andrew’s 100 free mark in a time trial, Marciano geared up for the 50 fly, cutting a full 1.2 seconds from prelims to eclipse the mark. This is the third of Andrew’s NAGs that Marciano has taken down this week and the second one today.

The past two records for Marciano have each been by very close margins. Andrew’s old record here was 23.65, and Marciano got under it by just .02 – he’s been making the fingernails count so far today, and he still has the 200 free to swim later on in the session.
