RACE FOOTAGE: Watch Alexandra Walsh’s 200-Yard Breast National Age Group Mark

MIDDLETOWN, Connecticut, March 17. CHELSEA Piers’ Alexandra Walsh had herself an amazing run at the Connecticut Age Group Championships, as she closed the weekend with her third 11-12 National Age Group mark in as many days.

After taking down the 100-yard IM and 100-yard back the last two nights, Walsh returned with a stunning time of 2:15.64 in the 200-yard breaststroke. That swim cut more than half-a-second off Annie Zhu’s 2007 record of 2:16.16 as Walsh continues to become a name to remember in the years to come.
