MEN’S 50 FREE SKINS

ROUND 1:

1.    Florent Manaudou – ENS – 20.84**
2.    Caeleb Dressel – CAC – 20.89**
3.    Nathan Adrian – LAC – 20.98**
4.    Ben Proud – ENS – 21.00**
5.    Kyle Chalmers – LON – 21.11
6.    Duncan Scott – LON – 21.28
7.    Michael Chadwick – LAC – 21.37
8.    Bowe Becker – CAC – 21.50

**advance to semi-finals

Another great finish for Energy Standard, who are coming on very strong and trying to steal this meet through the skins. Two into the top 8, joining two American standouts. Dressel is still the clear favorite, but Energy Standard has a great shot at putting two in the top three. It’ll probably be 2-4 for Energy Standard, with Manaudou making the final. It’ll be a reprise of Group A in the final tonight. That should give Energy Standard the team points win, too, if our math is correct.

ROUND 2:

1.    Caeleb Dressel – CAC – 21.76**
2.    Florent Manaudou – ENS – 22.19**
3.    Nathan Adrian – LAC – 22.43
4.    Ben Proud – ENS – 23.12

**advance to finals

ROUND 3:

1.    Caeleb Dressel – CAC – 21.46
2.   Florent Manaudou – ENS – 23.83

It’s something you don’t really want to happen until you are retired. To be in the next lane sucks I would imagine.

How do you think all the 50 point 100 flyers with Olympic gold aspirations feel — LeClos, the former Schooling, all the rest — when he blew by them by a second? Phelps is lucky he retired and didn’t have to face it in the next lane like Flo.

Except that Phelps did have his 100 fly gold aspirations denied in the next lane in Rio… BY the former Schooling😉

I understand that it is tough for him to see it go down, but after that 17.63 he had to have known his record was on borrowed time…
