In prelims of the men’s 100 back at the Greensboro site of the Speedo Summer Championships, Firestone Akron Swim Team 16-year-old Jonny Marshall finished 3rd in 55.30. The swim for Marshall was a lifetime best, coming in under his previous best of 55.58, which was swum 3 weeks ago, at the LE Sectionals.

In addition to the personal best, Marshall has now cracked the all-time top 10 for 15-16 boys in the LCM 100 backstroke, jumping over Carson Foster. Here is the current all-time top 10 for 15-16 boys:

Rank Time Swimmer Date
1 53.76 Ryan Murphy 6/5/2012
2 54.41 Conor Ferguson 4/28/2016
3 54.62 Michael Taylor 8/25/2015
4 54.74 Michael Andrew 8/25/2015
5 54.90 Daniel Diehl 5/1/2021
6 55.01 Logan McFadden 8/4/2017
7 55.02 Jack Conger 8/2/2011
8 55.04 Will Modglin 3/27/2021
9 55.30 Jonny Marshall 8/6/2021
10 55.37 Carson Foster 7/28/2018

There’s a pretty large gap between Marshall at #9, and Will Modglin at #8, so it will take a big best time tonight for Marshall to move up further on this ranking. Marshall has also swum lifetime bests in the men’s 200 back (2:02.34) and men’s 100 fly (55.30) already this week.

JP input is too short

Is that meant to be US rankings or world?

Because I’m pretty sure Conor Ferguson is Irish.
