In a swim-off for the men’s 50 free final, it was New York Athletic Club’s Josh Schneider who was out like a rocket and won the race with a 21.84. William Copeland, who trains with Rockbridge Storm, touched 2nd in 22.09.
In the semifinals, Copeland and Schneider tied with a 22.13, just ahead of 10th place Paul Powers (22.17). Schneider put up his 4th best time ever, just off of his 21.78 from the 2012 Olympic Trials. Copeland, meanwhile, went a lifetime best.
Schneider will join the rest of the qualifiers for tomorrow night’s final, as follows:
- Anthony Ervin 21.55
- Nathan Adrian 21.60
- Cullen Jones 21.93
- Jimmy Feigen 22.02
- Caeleb Dressel 22.04
- Dillon Virva 22.06
- Michael Chadwick 22.11
- Josh Schneider 22.13
Schneider has looked a bit off this meet, but his 21.84 from the swim-off would have placed him third going into the final. We could see all eight contenders dipping under the 22-second barrier in the 50 free final, which is slated for tomorrow night.
