MEN’S 100 BACK

1. Matt Grevers – LAC – 50.67
2. Shane Ryan – LAC – 50.93
3. Tristan Hollard – DCT – 51.50
4. Justin Ress – CAC – 51.68
5. Grigory Tarasevich – NYB – 51.71
6. Radoslaw Kawecki – CAC – 52.05
7. Jeremy Stravius – DCT – 52.29
8. Christopher Reid – NYB – 53.81

Matt Grevers and Shane Ryan were solid for LA, as they went 1-2 in the men’s 100 back. Taking the third place spot over Condor Justin Ress was DC’s Tristan Hollard.

Even without Ryan Murphy, LA dominates this event for a 1-2 finish. Matt Grevers‘ 50.67 is actually a tick slower than he was in group play. Newcomer Shane Ryan comes through with a huge swim, 50.93 for second. Ryan DQ’d out of the 50 back yesterday and was part of a relay DQ on an exchange, so he makes up for those points a bit with a great swim here. It’s not great for Cali, which finishes 4th and 7th. New York continues to inexplicably struggle in backstroke despite solid personnel – they’re 5th and 8th.

If you know more about elite swimming with a baby than the guy who won three world champs medals with an 8 month old, please do share.

he already was freakishly strong, and now he’s competing with double dad strength. Unfair!
