Cal’s Andrew Seliskar got off to a great start in his individual events at the 2019 Men’s NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas. In prelims on Thursday morning, Seliskar dropped half a second to take top seed for finals in the 200 IM, posting a blistering 1:39.90. That makes him the 5th man ever to break 1:40 in the event. The American Record remains a 1:38.13 done by Florida’s Caeleb Dressel in 2018.
- Fly- 21.87
- Back- 24.83
- Breast- 28.52
- Free- 24.68
- Final Time- 1:39.90
Seliskar’s time was a new Pool Record, breaking the former mark of 1:40.58 set in 2014 by Florida’s Marcin Cieslak. Also under the former Pool Record was Indiana’s Vini Lanza, the 2nd fastest through prelims with a lifetime best 1:40.23. If Seliskar wins this race tonight, it’ll be his first individual NCAA title.
Seliskar is now the 4th fastest performer ever in this event and his prelims performance was the 4th fastest swim in history. Lanza is now the #9 performer all-time with the 10th fastest performance ever. The 5th fastest performer ever will also be in the mix tonight, as NC State’s Andreas Vazaios, who broke 1:40 at the 2018 NCAA meet, is the 3rd qualifier for finals with a 1:40.62.
