McGill Tops Lochte in 100 Butterfly

Men’s 100 butterfly final, as reported by Braden Keith

After the internationals dominated early action in this session, the Americans took control as the evening wore on and won the last 4 individual events. Tyler McGill won this 100 fly in 53.38, his first time swimming this race since finishing 6th in London. This was a stark reminder to Ryan Lochte, who was 2nd in 54.40, that even without Michael Phelps in the mix anymore, the road to the top of the American podium in the 100 fly is certainly anything but easy.

Bolles senior Santo Condorelli, who will head to USC next season, took 3rd in 54.62, just getting a fingernail over a hard-finishing Wu Peng (54.63). Condorelli’s teammate Ryan Murphy won the B-Final in 54.88.
