We’ve had an insane amount of top level swimming taken place in the past week. Here are a few of our favorites…
Junya Koga splitting 20.35 in the 50 Back at AT&T Nationals.
Mireia Belmonte being the first woman to ever break 2:00 in the 200 Fly SCM at World Championships.
Townley Haas nearly beating Connor Jaeger in the 500 Free at Nationals. He went 4:14.19. He is still in high school but still undecided.
Also, props to Connor for breaking the AR in the 1650. Dude went 14:23.52. Out in 8:44.94 at the 1000!
Our good buddy Eric Knight splitting 18.99 on the 200 Free Relay at Nationals for SwimMac. Pretty good for just mentally training, right?
Ethan Dang continues to not only rewrite the NAG records books but absolutely DESTROY them. Check out this 2:05 200 Yard Breast!
Michael Andrew went to Canada and dropped some impressive SCM swims. 52.58 100 Fly and 59.71 100 Breast for the 15 year old.
Virginia’s own Andrew Seliskar continued to prove he is one of the next great superstars for American swimming. This kid can do it all — any stroke, any distance. 1:43.6 200 Free, 1:51.9 200 Fly, 2:05.5 200 Breast, 1:54.5 200 IM, 51.6 100 Back, and 47.6 100 Free.
Florent Manaudou’s 22.26 WR in the 50 Free was speedy, to say the least.
Alia Atkinson breaks WR in the 100 Breast, coming from behind and upsetting Ruta Meilutyte. First black woman to ever win a World Championship.
Markus Deibler of Germany sets new WR in 100 IM at World Championships.
Sarah Sjostrom becomes first woman ever to break 55 in the 100 Fly SCM at World Championships.
And, of course, Katinka Hosszu breaking WR’s and swimming almost every event. Does she ever get sleepy??
