Those costumed pull-ups are clearly paying off for Molly Hannis. This morning in prelims of the 2017 Tennessee Invite, the Rio Olympian and Tennessee postgrad threw down the all-time second-fastest 100 SCY breaststroke with 56.64 to become the second woman in history to break 57.
“Training has been going really well, so I knew it was going to be a good race,” Hannis told SwimSwam.
That swim catapults Hannis, traditionally more of a 200 swimmer, from 20th in the all-time performance rankings, leapfrogging the likes of Breeja Larson, Alia Atkinson, Sarah Haase, and seven Lilly King swims.
