Ryan Murphy, now in his junior year with the Berkeley Bears, turned in another great weekend of swimming in Athens.  Murphy posted the nation’s top times in the 100 backstroke (44.75) and  200 backstroke (1:38.35) with Jacob Pebley right behind swimming the second fastest 200 backstroke (1:38.86)  in the country this year.  The Bears’s relay teams were in championship form posting two nation-leading relay performances, Murphy alongside Josh Prenot, Justin Lynch, and Long Gutierrez would combine to end night one winning the 400 Medley relay (3:04.88) just off our their prelim swim in Iowa last March.  Gutierrez and Murphy would be joined by Andrew Seliskar and Trent Williams on night two to win the 800 Freestyle relay (6:16.41) actually out doing their performance from last year’s ncaas.

Murphy discussed his focus going into his 100 and 200 backstrokes and what he took away from his first summer world championships in Kazan.  The former Bolles star has also informed us we will not need to wait long for his return to long course stating he will be competing at the Arena Pro Series in Austin next month.

Lol did you use college swimming to find his rank in the 200 back? The person who is ranked ahead of him on that site is clearly a timing error (final 50 was 15). Plus I think we would see some articles if someone who wasn’t Ryan Murphy was going 1:38 low mid season.

The men’s backstroke events at the trials will be amazing. In the 100 someone with a 52 low could be left out (Grevers, Murphy and Plummer all have already been 52.5 or faster). In the 200 it depends whether lochte and grevers swim it (personally I don’t think either of them is concentrating on that event and probably would scratch it at the trials).
