MEN’S 100 BACKSTROKE FINALS

  1. Matt Grevers 53.31
  2. Jacob Pebley 54.05
  3. Hennessey Stuart 55.82
  4. Markus Thormeyer 56.00
  5. Sean Lehane 56.01
  6. Rob Hill 56.08

What a swim for Matt Grevers, who posted a huge 53.31 in his first big meet since the 2016 Olympic Trials where he missed out on the Olympic team with a third place finish in this event. Considering Grevers’ best in-season or non-championship time in this race is a 53.05 from the 2010 Austin Grand Prix, this is a very impressive swim for him. Finishing second was Jacob Pebley, who was 4th in this race in Omaha. Hennessey Stuart of NC State posted a 55.82 for third. Grevers and Pebley currently hold the world’s fastest times of 2017 in the 100 back.
