MEN’S 100 FLY FINALS
- Joseph Schooling, UN, 51.58
- Michael Phelps, North Baltimore, 51.65
- Jack Conger, Nation’s Capital, 51.72
In the very tight, very exciting race everyone was hoping for, Joseph Schooling emerged victorious over Michael Phelps and Jack Conger, touching in 51.58 for the win. Phelps was back by just 0.07 for 2nd in 51.65, and Conger was another 0.07 behind him in 51.72. Schooling was first to the wall in 24.19, with Conger (24.42) and Phelps (24.55) 2nd and 3rd. Phelps had the best back 50 of anyone in 27.10, but it wasn’t enough to run down Schooling. Schooling is now the 7th fastest man in 2016, while Phelps and Conger are 9th and 12th, and the top two Americans.
Tripp Cooper of Woodlands was 4th in 53.03, with David Nolan (53.06) and Will Glass (53.25) 5th and 6th in what was a very fast final.
