In event two, the 100 fly, Prim crushed the 15-year old record of 1:01.19 by Rebecca Spera set in March of 1994. Prim clocked in with a 58.50 setting the new record by almost three seconds. The third and final record-breaker came in the 200 IM as Prim set the new mark at almost a second faster than Jaime Jones did back in 1999 with a time of 2:12.75.
