As reported by SwimSwam / Braden Keith:
In a late candidate for “most impressive age group swim of the year,” 12-year old Ethan Dang has not only annihilated his own 11-12 National Age Group Record in the 200 yard breaststroke, but he has qualified for the 2014 Winter Junior Nationals that begin next Wednesday.
Dang swam a 2:05.56 on Sunday evening at the 2014 Husky Invitational, which is raced at his home pool: the King County Aquatic Center. That’s the same pool where he will now have the opportunity to race at the 2014 Winter Junior National Championships in this 200 breaststroke next week – the time standard for that meet is a 2:05.89.
While Dang’s swim is technically after the entry deadline, USA Swimming allows times swum from December 3rd – December 7th to be used to enter the meet, though it cannot alter a swimmer’s seeding/entry time otherwise.
