Stanford’s Janet Hu was on a roll during day 3 prelims of the 2017 Pac-12 Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships. Shortly after setting a new Meet Record in the 100 fly, she returned to the pool to set another Pac-12 Meet Record in the 100 back. Hu touched the wall in 50.29, taking down the former record of 50.64 done by Rachel Bootsma in 2015.
Hu’s Splits By 50:
- 1st 50- 24.49
- 2nd 50- 25.80
- Final Time- 50.29
Hu now ranks 4th on the all-time top performers list, moving ahead of Cindy Tran. Her time also marked the 7th fastest performance in history.

In tonight’s final, Hu will be chasing the elusive American Record of 49.97 set by Natalie Coughlin back in 2002. She’ll be up against a stacked field of backstrokers that includes defending champion Ally Howe, Linnea Mack, and Kathleen Baker, who all posted times in the 50-mid to high range in prelims. Cal’s Amy Bilquist, the 5th seed, has also been sub-51.
