Video GCAT’s Grace Van Brunt Downs U.S. National Age Group Record

CLEARWATER, Florida, May 10. At the Clearwater World Championship Trials Qualifier/Age Group Invitational tonight, Georgia Coastal Aquatics' Grace Van Brunt took down the 10-and-under U.S. National Age Group record in the 50-meter back.

Van Brunt raced to a 32.85 in the finale as the 10-year-old trumped the previous record of 32.87 set by newly-minted high school national independent school record setter Ella Eastin back in 2008.

Nashville's Kallie Chelsvig (34.51) and The Woodlands' Kaitlyn Montgomery (35.95) placed second and third in the event.

There was a great reaction after the swim, as seen in the following video.
