Default Swim times for old dudes

Hello everyone. I just started swimming again four years ago after a 40 year layoff. I was one of the clunkers who swam the medley at the end of the meet...You know the one. hA HAAA... It's the event that goes on while everyone else is congratulating each other on the way to the locker room. I am 61 years old. Two years ago I taught myself how to butterfly by watching videos of Mike, Mark, Misty and other pros. on you tube. It took me two years to develop a nice rhythm. Two kicks per stroke...I can now sprint 25 yards in 20 seconds with one breath. For my age group is that time good bad or ugly? Just wondering. Thanx much.
