MEN’S 100 BREASTSTROKE- FINALS RECAP – 2015 ARENA PRO SWIM SERIES
Today was a historical day for Michael Andrew. He started off the morning with a personal best in his 100m breaststroke which set him up perfectly for a chance to take his first Grand Prix/ Pro Swim Series title.
Out like a rocket was Glenn Snyders, an Olympian from New Zealand who trains out of the Trojan Swim Club. Snyders was very quick with a time of 28.49 to lead the field by a sizable margin. Right behind him was Mike Alexandrov.
Andrew turned in fourth, but with a beautiful pullout of the wall started to make a little bit of a move on the rest of the field.
Slowly, everyone began to catch Snyders. At the wall it was very close, but it was Andrew who managed to get his hands on the wall first for gold, solidifying his first Pro Swim Series win ever with a new personal best of 1:01.67 and a 15-16 National Age Group Record.
Snyders grabbed the silver with a time of 1:01.70 with Alexandrov finishing third not far behind in 1:01.77.
That time for Andrew also doubled as a 15-16 national age-group record in the event.
