Watch SwimMAC 11-12 Boys Break 400 Free Relay NAG (VIDEO)

Yesterday, the SwimMAC foursome of Baylor NelsonNathan AdamsStephen Kim, and Brayden Brewer lopped over a second off of King Aquatic Club’s 11-12 NAG record in the 400 medley relay.

Today, on the final day of competition at Tar Heel States, the same four boys combined for a new NAG record in the 400 free relay, touching at 3:30.67.

SWIMMAC, 2016 (3:30.67)
Brewer 52.08
Kim 52.33
Adams 53.64
Nelson 52.62

This snuck by the old record of 3:30.75 set by Irvine Novaquatics in 2013. Meet results don’t show up accurately for their second two legs, Kevin Tu and Hunter Hitchens, but they led off with a 53.37 from Owen Kao and a 53.08 from Shawn Lou.

For SwimMAC, Brewer and Kim put up the quickest splits. Their anchor leg, Nelson, split an impressive 56.86 fly leg on their record-breaking 400 medley relay yesterday.

Incredible Kick. If they progress and get some good underwaters they could all drop 2 seconds easily. And thats without growing or getting any stronger. I will be very interested as to where these boys end up.


And from the looks of it, not a FINA stamp in sight!

Same comments as the first 2. Funny that we all should be noticing the same 2 things, the great kicks on all the swimmers and that they did not have on tech. suits. Great job boys.
