WATCH Cincinnati Marlins 13-14 Boys Demolish 200 Medley Relay NAG Record (Race Video)

Yesterday at the 2015 Ohio Long Course Age Group Championships, the Cincinnati Marlins downed the 13-14 National Age Group record in the boys 200 medley relay, taking off almost nine tenths from the old record held by Washington Township Swim Club from Indiana. See our report from the record here. Take a look at the race video, sent to us by Jim Foster, father of Carson and Jake, who swam the back and breast legs of his relay, respectively.


Jackson Miller 29.43
Andrew Couchon 31.00
Drew Kibler 26.17
Parker Herschberger 24.88



Carson Foster 28.23
Jake Foster 29.85
Matthew Sims 26.76
Kevin Thibodeaux 25.76


The key legs for the Marlins were the front two, brothers Carson and Jake, who split 28.23 and 29.85, respectively, which was a collective 2.35 seconds faster than Washington Township’s first half. Matthew Sims (26.76) and Kevin Thibodeaux (25.76) rounded out the Marlins’ relay. From the video, each leg of this relay had an incredibly fast turnover rate, which is more commonly seen in younger swimmers. Carson Foster and Thibodeaux are both only 13.

With the exception of the back to breast exchange, it looked as though the fly and free legs, Sims and Thibodeaux, had rather safe starts, and perhaps the Marlins’ have a faster relay in them.
