Women’s 100 fly

Beata Nelson, 16, of Southwest Aquatic Team crushed her 15-16 National Age Group record in the 100-yard fly with a 51.08 this evening at the Arena Grand Prix in Minnesota.

Last week, she set the record with a national high school mark of 51.70 at the Wisconsin high school state championships.

That performance lowered Katie McLaughlin’s high school and national age group record of 51.78 from earlier this year.

Nelson’s stunning time of 51.08 is already under the 17-18 national age group record of 51.18 set by Natalie Coughlin back in 2001. With this time of a swim, we could be witnessing the dawning of a new legend in the sport.

McLaughlin took second tonight in 52.27 with Daniel Nack winding up third in 53.06.

Becca Weiland (53.14), Tori Simenec (53.26), Lisa Boyce (53.97), Dominique Bouchard (54.16) and Devin Ste Marie (54.41) also turned in times in the A finale.

Tevyn Waddell won the B final in 53.96 with Shannon Vreeland taking second in 54.05.

Annie Ochitwa (54.10), Blake Zeiger (54.26), Marie-Pier Couillard (54.44), Zoe Avestruz (54.52), Kelsey Drake (54.57) and Ruby Martin (55.15) also swam in the consolation heat.
