It’s a start, a turn, and a finish, and then it’s done. Santo Condorelli was out fastest and home fastest, and thus earned the national title, clocking a swift 48.05. Trojan Swim Club’sVladimir Morozov was second at the turn, and although California Aquatics’ Nathan Adrian outsplit him coming home, he was able to hold on for the silver with 48.51. Adrian had to settle for bronze with 48.60.
Condorelli improved his season-best by 6/10 and rose to the top of the leaderboard for the 2015-16 year.
