2018 M. NCAAs: Dressel Cracks 43 with 42.80 100 Fly

2018 MEN’S NCAA SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Friday night at the 2018 Men’s NCAA Championships in Minneapolis, Minnesota set the stage for one final NCAA 100 fly showdown between Florida’s Caeleb Dressel and Texas’ Joseph Schooling. The race once again went to Dressel. He made history as the first man to break 43, clocking in at 42.80 to dominate the race. The Gators went 1-2 with Jan Switkowski taking 2nd in 44.49. That makes Switkowski the 6th fastest man ever. Indiana’s Vini Lanza moved to #7 all-time with his 44.50 for 3rd. Texas’ Schooling was 4th in 44.88.

Splits:

  • 1st 50 Split- 19.99
  • 2nd 50 Split- 22.81
  • Final Time- 42.80

The former NCAA Record stood at a 43.58 from last season’s NCAA meet, where Dressel upset schooling for the title after Schooling had won the previous 2 years. They’re still the fastest 2 swimmers in history.

He’s Missy’d.

Except that Missy was working her butt off the whole time. Don’t think that’s been the case for Schooling since Rio.
