Day 2 of the Atlanta Classic got underway this morning with the most impressive swim coming from American Record holder Josh Prenot. Prenot, who lost out to Michael Andrew last night in the 100 breast, posted the top time of the morning in the 200 breast by nearly ten seconds in 2:10.09. The swim is just a tenth off his season best of 2:09.93, done at the Arena Pro Series in Indi.

Caeleb Dressel, who picked up a win last night in the 100 fly, was in action in the 50 free and 100 back this morning. In the 50, he posted the 5th best time of the morning in 23.23, with Ryan Held sitting 3rd (23.15) and Justin Ress at the top of the heap in 22.88.

Ress also posted the top time in the 100 back at 54.91, followed by Hennessey Stuart (56.22), Taylor Dale (56.37) and Luke Kaliszak (57.29). Dressel missed the A-final in 14th at 59.04.

On the women’s side, Asia Seidt of Lakeside took two top seeds this morning in the 200 fly and 100 back. She posted a time of 2:14.83 in the 200 fly, with Isabella Gati sitting 2nd at 2:15.93. The 100 back saw her take out Bridgette Alexander by two-one-hundredths of a second, 1:01.88 to 1:01.90. Alex Walsh (1:02.60) and Ali Galyer (1:02.89) sit 3rd and 4th heading to finals.

Ky-Lee Perry was the lone woman under 26 seconds in the 50 free, coming in at 25.86. Amanda Weir sits 3rd at 26.21, while Julie Meynen (26.01) holds 2nd.

Impressive compared to his 100 at the same meet. Points to heavy training.

Joel Lin

He is clearly racing broken down from training now. For him to go this time with basically no speed by his own standards now is very impressive. He could toggle the WR in the 200 this summer. Hope to see him break through.


His splits are a little rough for him. He usually has another gear at the end. Maybe he was just testing his first 100 pace and then backed off or he is only swimming prelims?

why is Dressel even here? a 23 and 59 100 back? he can do that off a push in practice probably


Long course prep meet?

samuel huntington

I guess I’m thinking that UF has a long course pool. He can certainly get on the blocks there and swim a 23. It just seems weird because he is wearing a speedo here.


It’s a training meet. A meet to gain some more long course experience after the college short course season. A meet to try and experiment with a few things. This meet doesn’t mean anything A meet that is practically in his back yard. A perfect meet for Dressel to attend.

samuel huntington

it’s a five hour drive, I wouldn’t say that’s in his back yard.

It’s probably better than having Nats/World Trials be your first long course meet since the Olympics.


Finals…22.3, 55.8. Do you get it now?


That’s what I’m talking about
