3rd Annual ‘Fastest Man in Texas’ Shootout slated for Nov. 1 in San Antonio, inaugural women’s event added
The date has been set for the 2014 Fastest Man in Texas shootout, where Jimmy Feigen (pictured) and a host of sprinters will compete to steal the 3rd annual Fastest Man in Texas title, while the first-ever women’s title is up for grabs.
TYR Sport is proud to announce that three of its athletes — Matt Grevers, Michael McBroom and Jimmy Feigen– have earned bids to the 2015 FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia.
Leading the Elite Camp will be Olympians Jimmy Feigen, Kara Lynn Joyce and Strength and Conditioning expert, Nick Folker. Qualifying times in the 100 yard free of 54.99 (boys) and 58.99 (girls) are required to attend.
Matt Grevers won the men’s 100m backstroke with a blazing fast time of 52.75 — the third-fastest time in the world this year — securing his spot at Pan Pacs. This accolade, in addition to his win in the men’s 50m butterfly, helped earn Grevers the individual High Point Award on the final night of Nationals.
Phelps was 7th in the 100m free, but will have another shot to swim the race in a Pan Pac prelim provided he makes the US Team, which is expected.
Nathan Adrian worked his way into the finish to win the race with a time of 48.31.

Phelps was very slow to the first 50. He popped up way behind Adrian who was beside him in lane four, and fell even farther behind going into that first wall. Adrian was an incredible 22.63 to flip first; Phelps was way behind in 23.98.
Michael Phelps will swim four events, including leaving a couple of old favorites off of his list.
There is limited space available for this Elite Level SPEED and POWER Swim Camp. Only swimmers capable of swimming faster than 54.99 for men and 58.99 in the 100 yard freestyle are eligible to attend.
