I was just looking at the results for the Western Section meet held in Federal Way, WA this weekend and saw a swim that literally made me say "wow!"

Women 100 yard freestyle
1 Franklin, Missy 13 Colorado Stars-C 49.63 48.48*USOP 20
23.48 48.48

The next fastest girl was nearly two seconds back. Thirteen years old, are you kidding me?!!

She also swam a 22.71 to win the 50, and to show she's not a one-trick pony swam under 2:00 in the 200 IM (1:59.59)!

WOW, indeed. Now matter how excited I get about my times, all I need to do to bring me down a notch is to find some 12 or 13 year old girl who is kicking my butt! WOW, indeed.

A little gossip for you...thats John (The Goodsmiths) Smiths sons girlfriend. He's 13 as well and just went 1:44 in the 200 free...think he's already 6'4" and most likely going to Texas!! :)

Missy also swam a 4:12 400 IM, a 53.6 100 back and a 1:55.0 200 back. Talk about versatile

Her teammate, 13 year old Clark Smith, progeny of John, also had a nice meet with a 48.7 100 free, a 52.8 100 fly, 1:57 200 fly and 4:42 500 free.

Nice swimming from the youngsters.

One would hope that Missy doesn't let Clark forget that she's faster than he is...

I just looked at the girls NAG records to see how Missy Franklin's 100 free compared.

The current 13-14 record is 49.53 by Amanda Weir

The current 15-16 record is 48.52 also by Weir.

She surpassed both and is still 13. Amazing.

Actually Missy broke Lia Neal's 13-14 100 Free record of :49.47 which she swam at the 2008 SCY Nats in Atlanta last December. And still by quite alot!

Lia has the NAG 13-14 50 LCM record at :25.88 done at Jr Pan Pacs in Guam--looks like Missy may have that one also by this summer.

Saw a 14 year boy, Jack Conger, swim a 49.92 in the 100 fly tonight. He broke the PV record (51.3) of Sean Fletcher, who just set the National High School record of 47.0 a few weeks ago. He is apparently after the NAG in the 200 back this weekend, held by Peirsol.

Michigan swimmer Clary breaks Phelps' American record

by Ann Arbor News sports staff Friday March 27, 2009, 11:31 PM

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS - University of Michigan swimmer Tyler Clary won the NCAA title in the 400-yard individual medley Friday night in 3 minutes, 35.98 seconds.
It was the sophomore's first NCAA title, coming on the heels of Thursday's silver medal in the 200 IM.
The 400 time broke the NCAA record of 3:38.03 he set at the Big Ten meet on Feb. 27, the NCAA Championships record of 3:38.15 set by Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte of Florida in 2006 and the American and U.S. Open records of 3:36.26 set by Olympic legend Michael Phelps of Club Wolverine, also in 2006.
Clary was seeded first after a preliminary time of 3:38.16.
2 sec faster that Lochte in 2006, 0.3s faster that Phelps in 2006, 2 sec under the older NCAA record, from a sophomore ???
One Word : Wow :bow:

Next is he going to Rome ?
yes 400y IM is a different race that 400m LC IM bu if I'm not mistaken at the worlds there're 4 slot so he'll have a chance at the trials..
