Cincinnati Marlins’ Carson Foster, 10, Downs U.S. National Age Group Record; Video Included

CINCINNATI, Ohio, July 11. CARSON Foster, a 10-year-old swimmer representing the Cincinnati Marlins, took down the boys 10-and-under U.S. National Age Group record in the 50-meter fly last night at the Cincinnati Marlins Time Trial/Championship Qualifier meet.

Foster clocked a time of 30.26 in the event, breaking the 1996 record of 30.55 set by Mujahid El-Amin. The Marlins are also looking at Foster potentially becoming the youngest swimmer in the U.S. to break 30 seconds in the 50 fly.

The Marlins also reported that Ian Brann, Aaron Sequeira, Foster and Jacob McDonald downed the Ohio LSC record in the boys 10-and-under 400-meter medley relay with a 5:11.13. The previous record had been a 5:40.49 set by Greater Toledo back in 1984.

Special thanks to Dave Rollins for the heads up.
