Gold Medal Minute presented by

Matt Grevers dropped a 53.31 in the 100m backstroke on the final night of the Pro Swim Series in Austin.  After getting edged off the 2016 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team, Grevers is glad he’s still got his racing legs and the ability to predict his times.  Grevers rested three days for the ATX PSS and he was clipped a little for an upcoming TYR photo shoot.

Grevers, swimming’s giant,  made it clear he will make a hard run at the 2017 World Championships this summer.  If you know your Grevers’ history, you remember his failure to make the 2011 World Championship Team. Grevers came charging back in 2012 at the Olympics, and I think we’ll see the same–hard charging–athlete this June at the US Nationals/World Championship selection meet in Indianapolis.

Prediction: At the US Nationals this summer, I think Grevers be 52.4 or faster, and I think that’ll be enough to make the 2017 US Worlds Team. What do you think?

Rooting for Grevers – such a class backstroker !!!!

Pebley takes more and more speed. A sub 52.50 should be necessary to make the US team.
