Fresh off his U.S. Open Meet record in heats, Andrew Wilson charged to the early lead in the 100 breast final. He turned at 27.96, just a tick ahead of Dmitriy Balandin (28.0). The second half belonged to Balandin, though, as the Olympic Champion in the 200 breast came home in 31.35 to Wilson’s 31.58 for the victory. Balandin missed the meet record by .08 with his final time of 59.36. Wilson was runner-up in 59.54. Cody Miller took third in 59.92. No one else broke a minute in the heat, although fourth-place Nic Fink went 1:00.05.
