Texas’ Will Licon became the first 200 breaststroker in history to break the 1:48 barrier, winning the event on day 4 of the 2017 Men’s NCAA Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana. Licon, a senior, went out in style, taking one last NCAA victory with an American and NCAA Record time of 1:47.91.

The big difference between his swim tonight and last season’s record-setting performance was his front half. He took it out almost 4 tenths faster, turning in 51.42 at the 100. Licon was far and away the fastest swimmer in the field, as he finished over 3 seconds faster than Alabama’s Anton McKee, who is now the 9th fastest performer ever with his 1:51.22.
