Michael Andrew stopped at the Omaha Cup for a pre-Olympic Trials tune-up after a 2016 season that has been both up and down. Andrew, a resident of Kansas, entered the meet in the 100 breaststroke and 50 free.

Andrew succeeded in turning heads one week before the Trials are slated to begin with a National Age Group record of 1:00.46 in the 100 breaststroke. That time overturns current U.S. National Team member Kevin Cordes’ 17-18 NAG record of 1:00.47. Cordes originally set the record at the age of 18 while swimming at the 2012 U.S. Open.

Andrew vs. Cordes splits:

  • Andrew: 28.12/32.34–1:00.46
  • Cordes: 28.33/32.14–1:00.47

Andre’s new NAG record overturns his previous lifetime best of 1:00.68 which he posted at last summer’s 2015 U.S. National Championships, a swim that stands as the current 15-16 NAG record.

After today’s swim Andrew owns a total of 25 NAG records between short course and long course.
