14-year-old Josh Zuchowski broke the 13-14 NAG record in the 100 back that was previously held by Michael Andrew on Friday night at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Richmond, Virginia. Zuchowski swam a 56.62 and placed third in the B-Final of the 100 back, lowering Andrew’s record that had stood since 2014.

Zuchowski previously swam a 57.11 four weeks ago in Clearwater and was third all-time in the NAG rankings. He swims for the Flood Aquatics Swim Team in West Palm Beach, Florida.
