Tucson Ford’s Matt Grevers led the A final of the 100 back from the very start, splitting 25.35 on the first 50, and finishing the race with 52.54, third fastest time in the world this season behind Australia’s Mitchell Larkin‘s 52.11 and David Plummer‘s 52.51.
Second place went to Grigory Tarasevich in 53.80, followed by New York Athletic Club’s Arkady Vyatchanin‘s 54.12.
After the race, Grevers said that he didn’t have the cleanest swims at Worlds, so he’s happier at this meet. He also mentioned that he has gotten more consistent. “It’s not as much of a gamble as it was when I was younger,” he said.
Trojan Vlad Morozov jumped ahead of the field to win the consols in 53.85.
