Zoe Skirboll Breaks 11-12 NAG Record in 50 Breaststroke

12-year old Zoe Skirboll had the fastest 50 breaststroke on Saturday at the ISCA Summer Seniors Championships, beating out swimmers 5-and-6 years her senior, and in the process broke the 11-12 National Age Group Record in the event.

She swam 32.96, which broke Olivia Calegan’s 2012 National Age Group Record for 11-12s.

The swim improved her previous best time of 33.54, done just two weeks ago, by more than half-a-second.

Skirboll has been ranked atop her age group nationally since she was a 10 & under, and earlier this year broke the 50 yard National Age Group Record as well (twice). She’s also a National Age Group Record holder in the 10 & under age group in the 50 yard and 100 yard frees – including tying Olympic gold medalist Lia Neal in the 50 free.

Skirboll’s full results so far this week:

  • 200 IM – 2:24.15 (2:23.00 in prelims)
  • 100 Breast – 1:14.57
  • 50 Fly – 29.04 (29.02 in prelims)
  • 100 Fly – 1:03.43
  • 200 Free – 2:09.70
  • 50 Free – 27.24
  • 100 free – 59.35 (prelims)
