U.S. National Age Group Record Roundup -- August 6, 2012

PHOENIX, Arizona, August 6. DURING the past week-and-a-half with the swimming community focused on the 2012 London Olympics, quite a few U.S. National Age Group records took a tumble.

Boys 10-and-under 200-meter freestyle relay
During the Metropolitan Swimming Junior Olympics Long Course Championships, held in East Meadow, N.Y. (July 27-29), the foursome of Nick Torres (30.66), Brendan Lee (31.33), Yugo Tsukikawa (30.76) and Ryan Maierle (29.27) combined for a time of 2:02.52 in the boys 10-and-under 200 free relay to take down the U.S. National Age Group record in the event. That swim eclipsed the 2:02.73 set by Arden Hills' Jeremy Szymanowski, Jason Kawakami, Jeffrey Piland and Kent Johnson way back in 1984.

At the USA Swimming Sectionals held in Buffalo, CUBU's Cassidy Bayer, 12, lowered her records in the girls 11-12 butterfly events yet again.

In Buffalo, she became the first person in her age division to break 1:02 with a stunning time of 1:01.75. She also demolished her NAG record in the 200 fly with a blistering time of 2:15.02. She first set the NAG with a 2:18.61 in June, before dropping it even further in July with a 2:17.65. The meet in Buffalo marked an incredible three-and-a-half second drop in just two months with her 2:15.02 as of Aug. 2012.
