1. Caeleb Dressel – CAC – 22.21
2. Tom Shields – LAC – 22.72
3. Michael Andrew – NYB – 22.74
4. Jack Conger – LAC – 23.11
5. Giles Smith – DCT – 23.32
6. Jan Switkowski – CAC – 23.61
7. Ryan Coetzee – NYB – 23.62
8. Cody Miller – DCT – 24.09

Caeleb Dressel, who swapped in this event instead of the 200 IM, paid off as he won the 50 fly in American record-breaking fashion. Taking second place was LA’s Tom Shields, who held off Breaker Michael Andrew for the 7-point position.

Dressel goes 22.21 for the second-best time in the ISL this season. Iron’s Szabo was 22.20 in Budapest. It’s another key win for Dressel, and justifies Cali’s decision to leave him out of the 200 IM one event earlier. LA goes 2-4 for a solid finish. Tom Shields has been very reliable this year. DC had to enter breaststroker Cody Miller, and he was 8th, just barely missing the benchmark time.

I like cody and I havent watched the video yet, but I highly doubt the american record holder in the 50 fly will get intimidated doing a 50 fly against a solely breastroker.


He was obviously kidding


Yea I figured. I just watched it.

Love the headline, made me LOL big time.


i only downvoted you because you said you like Cody


Don’t think Cody will make 2020


thats pretty more obvious today …too many good breaststrokers around in Usa


Yeah almost 2


I don’t think he can beat Wilson. Americans are hurting in that event. Hope we can at least get two under 58.5 at trials.


I guess Cody thought his dolphin kicking ability would carry into strokes other than breast


Get a new joke, he changed his entire pullout to avoid this issue and comments like yours.


It took him 5+ years to make that correction; can we get the same amount of time?


5 years of being one of many that do it and the only one getting DQed… every other elite breastroker has been doing the same exact thing


The underwater view at these ISL meets doesnt do the breaststrokers any favors.


A reputation earned over years doesn’t go away in 4 months. Jokes like these will burn themselves out if he stays clean, but for now he’s still fair game.


Ol’ Longhorn already said that
