After swimming a new personal best of 58.82 in the 100 breaststroke during prelims to become the second-fastest American in history, Michael Andrew broke his first US Open record during finals at the Pro Swim Series in Indianapolis.
Andrew won the event with a time of 58.67 to chop just under a tenth of a second off of the US Open Record of 58.74, which was held by both Kevin Cordes and Yan Zibei. His time also came within .03 of Cordes’ American Record of 58.64, which was set at the 2017 World Championships.

Compared to his prelims swim, Andrew was out over a tenth of a second faster, which ultimately proved to be the difference as his back-half splits were almost identical.
Andrew’s time also set a new Pro Swim Series record, taking down his mark from the prelims session. He remains the second-fastest American all-time and now moves to 4th in the world for this season.
