3-time Olympic gold medalist, Nathan Adrian, explains why he uses the ancient art of cupping to recover.
Adrian continues to control the 100 meter freestyle for Team USA, recently dropping a 48.1 at the Santa Clara Grand Prix. Adrian’s in-season 48.1 essentially ties his (shaved) win at the 2010 Pan Pacific Championships. With Michael Phelps in the 100 free mix this summer, Adrian will be challenged in this event.
Prediction: Adrian, after suffering sickness at the 2013 FINA World Championships, returns to form at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships, winning the 100 freestyle in 47.36.
What’s your prediction for the men’s 100 free at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships?
