Indiana’s Ian Finnerty made history on Friday night at the 2018 Men’s NCAA Championships. Finnerty smashed his lifetime best to win the 100 breast, clocking in at 49.69. That makes Finnerty the fastest man ever and the first man to break 50 seconds. Before tonight, Florida’s Caeleb Dressel had come the closest to breaking that barrier with his 50.03 from SECs.
- 1st 50 Split- 23.26
- 2nd 50 Split- 26.43
- Final Time- 49.69
Finnerty’s American Record and NCAA Record tonight took about 4 tenths off the previous record. He was over a second faster than anyone else in the field tonight, as Cal’s Connor Hoppe finished 2nd in 51.16. Finnerty will now get ready to help Indiana compete for a sweep of the medley relays in tonight’s 200 medley relay finals.
ALL-TIME TOP 10 PERFORMERS: MEN’S 100 BREAST
*Due to issues with the timing system at the ISCA meet, which caused swimmers’ times to appear 4 tenths faster than they actually were, we don’t know for sure where Michael Andrew‘s swim falls on this list yet.
