  2. Alex Evdokimov (PRVT), 1:00.83
  3. Tommy Cope (CW), 1:00.88

Michael Andrew followed up his prelim PB in a big way, setting a new U.S. Open Record in the men’s 100 breaststroke in 58.67, just .03 shy of the American Record set by Kevin Cordes in 2017 (58.64).

The previous U.S. Open Record was set by Cordes at the 2017 U.S. World Trials in 58.74.

Andrew’s swim is also another Pro Swim Series Record after he lowered it down to 58.82 in the prelims. The previous mark belonged to Adam Peaty at 58.86.

Compared to his morning swim, Andrew was out .13 faster tonight in 27.32, and back .02 quicker in 31.35.

Andrew now moves up fourth in the world rankings for 2020-21, leading the next-fastest American (Andrew Wilson, 59.58) by a full nine tenths of a second.

When this happens I will completely lose faith in the integrity of this event and the fact that we will probably not see a sub 1:54 for millennia to come.

In 6-7 years there could be 8 guys in the 1:54 range or better. Records are made to be broken.

I guess you don’t have any favorite athletes that you hope will never be beaten. You just go from one athlete to another like hopping the bandwagon.

Say what you will about MA, but if he splits the 200 IM that way and makes the team, you know Tokyo is going to be exciting as hell

Dressell comes to mind – Andrews is good but will earn zero medals IF he makes the team.
