Reece Whitley

It was all Reece Whitley dropping almost 3 seconds from his morning swim to set a new 15 and 16 National Age Group Record with a time of 1:52.37 in the 200 yard breaststroke.  He took only four strokes per 25 for the first 125 and then only 5 strokes per length for the remaining 75 yards to log the impressive time.  He lowered his existing record by over 1 second.

Philly proud! I never watch him for stroke ideas though because he swims his own race being 6’8. I always try to find short, fast people to watch.
