He’s consistently dropped time at NCAAs so you would think so.

Judging by his reaction, he didn’t expect to swim that fast. Considering that he was just off his bests in the 100 bk and 200 bk, it’s credible that he was on short rest for this meet with partial (no?) shave.

I mean, does anyone NOT shave their armpits when they shave down?

His first pullout was weird. Probably could get under 1:40 with a smoother transition there.

Rowdy was NOT ready for that! Loved his reaction at the end!

It’s a good thing it wasn’t close, because Nolan was breathing to one side and wouldn’t have seen whomever on the opposite side.
