As we predicted earlier, Matt Grevers no-showed the men’s 50 free prelims this morning, his final entry of the meet. After missing the Olympic team in the 100 back, 100 free, and 200 back, Grevers said that “there’s no room for me“; and it’s now evident that he was planning on ending his meet with the 200 back.
Grevers came into the 50 free seeded tenth with 22.22.
Also no-showing heat 18 of the 50 free prelims was Seth Stubblefield of California Aquatics. Stubblefield was seeded seventh in the event with 22.15. He most likely scratched in order to focus on the 100 fly. Stubblefield comes into the 100 fly seeded tenth with 52.31.
Caeleb Dressel of the Bolles School Sharks scored the top time in the 50 free heats this morning with 21.76, followed by SwimMAC’s Anthony Ervin. Ervin’s SwimMAC teammate Cullen Jones came in close behind with 21.84.
However, it was fourth place Nathan Adrian who looked the strongest this morning. Adrian finished in 21.96, but he completely shut it down about ten meters from the wall, still winning his heat easily.
