AUSTIN, Texas, January 19. AFTER a morning during which the 14-year-old professional swimmer Michael Andrew took down the 13-14 U.S. National Age Group record in the 100-meter backstroke, Andrew returned this evening to win the men's 100-meter breast B final in a NAG record.

Andrew turned in a sizzling time of 1:03.83 to win the consolation heat. That swim smashed the previous record of 1:04.74 set by Anthony Robinson way back in 1994, 20 years ago. Andrew split the swim 30.28 going out and 33.55 coming home.


Andrew keeps racking up the national age group records. In long course meters, he holds the 11-12 50 free (25.09), 50 fly (26.22), 13-14 50 free (23.19), 100 back (57.38), 100 breast (1:03.83) and 200 IM (2:05.13). In short course events, he's the top age group swimmer in the 10-and-under 100 IM (1:01.31), 11-12 50 free (21.85), 100 free (47.95), 50 breast (27.46), 50 fly (23.56), 100 IM (53.86), 13-14 100 free (44.73), 100 back (48.68), 100 breast (55.43) and 100 fly (47.47).
