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!


great challenge of course but he might pull it out next year nonetheless . Let’s support him
