16-year-old Jimi Hendrix breaks Guam record in 100 meters butterfly

At the Guam Swimming Championships on May 18, 2019, Jimi Hendrix won the 100 meters butterfly, finishing with a time of 59.87 and breaking the Guam record (1:00.11), which was set by Benjamin Schulte in 2011.
Hendricks commented after his record-breaking swim: "I've been working on this record for over a year. For me it was the first and last competition of the season, as well as it was the last competition in which I participated at the age of 16, so I am glad that I was able to set this record. I started swimming when I was a kid, and I think I've already achieved a lot in this sport." (The Daily Guam Post)
"Every time I break personal records, I get an energy charge that helps me move on and train harder and harder."
Hendricks performed in Hangzhou, China. He represented Guam in the 50m and 100m freestyle.
"My main goal is to reach the time that will allow me to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games," Hendricks said. "No one from Guam has ever been selected for the Olympics in this discipline, so I'm going to be the first."
