  • US Open Record: 51.94, Aaron Peirsol, 2009

  1. Ryosuke Irie, MAC, 53.50
  2. Ryan Murphy, CAL, 53.53
  3. Jacob Pebley, CAL, 54.45

As expected Ryan Murphy was out first at the 50 wall in 25.78, with Ryosuke Irie sitting second over four tenths back. Coming home Irie began to make up ground and Murphy and pulled even with him over the final strokes. At the touch it was Irie in 53.50, with Murphy back by three one-hundredths in 53.53. Irie’s back 50 was a blazing 27.30.

Irie just misses his season best of 53.46 which has him 4th in the world, while Murphy takes over 5th edging past Australia’s Mitch Larkin (53.54).

It was Jacob Pebley taking 3rd in 54.45, holding off Arkady Vyatchanin (54.65) and David Gamburg (54.82). In the B-final, Germany’s Christian Diener took off 1.4 from the morning to win the heat in 54.79.
