Winn Aung of the Redding Swim Team in Redding, California has broken yet another National Age Group Record after swimming a 55.03 in the 100 long course meter freestyle at a Junior Olympic Meet in Roseville, California this weekend.
Like all but one of his other 8 National Age Group Records the latest comes in freestyle, breaking the 2014 mark previously held by New Jerseyan Destin Lasco. Aung broke the record by the slimmest of measured margins – .01 seconds. He came very close to this record two weeks ago when he swam 55.10, and just dipped under on Friday.
This was in all likelihood his last chance to chase National Age Group Records before aging up to 13-14’s next week. That means he’ll start chasing Michael Andrew’s record of 51.30 from that age group shortly, as well as his 23.19 in the 50 free and Trey Freeman’s 1:53.31 in the 200 free from earlier this year.
Aung also swam a 59.54 100 meter fly, 30.32 50 meter back, and 27.22 50 meter fly on the weekend.
