WATCH: 2015 Men’s NCAA Swimming & Diving full day 2, 3 finals including Murphy’s 200 back record, Texas 100 fly

As with the women’s meet, the NCAA has posted full finals sessions from the 2015 men’s NCAA Championships on YouTube for fans to relive the thrilling national championships.

Some fans will be disappointed to find that Rowdy Gaines’ commentary has been dubbed into a foreign language, but the races videos are still excellent quality.

In the video, posted above courtesy of the NCAA Channel on YouTube, you can watch all the action leading up to Texas’s runaway national title, including that dominant 100 fly in which Texas swept 6 of the top 8 spots.

Cal’s Ryan Murphy earned the NCAA Swimmer of the Meet award, and you can watch the highlight of his meet, an American record-shattering 1:36.77 in the 200 back that wiped Olympic icon Ryan Lochte off the record books. Murphy also set the NCAA record in the 100 back on day 1, which is not included in the above video.

Among the highlight races: Texas sophomore Will Licon‘s twin upsets of American record-holders. First, he takes down 400 IM star Chase Kalisz of Georgia on day 2, then tops breaststroke king Kevin Cordes of Arizona in the 200 breast on day 3.

Other national records included Texas’s 400 medley relay and Stanford’s David Nolan in the 200 IM. Both races are from day 1, and not included in this video. Cal’s 200 medley relay also set the American record in prelims of day 2.

One day our people will get justice… distance swimmers that is. Still waiting for a big swim meet to actually broadcast the (whole) 1650/1500. Most people don’t care, but to distance swimmers that stuff is golden.

I honestly think if people could watch PJ Ransford take it out like a light and nearly hold off Matias Koski, or that epic 2013 battle between Chad La Tourette and Martin Grodzki where they both went under the US Open record, people would be into distance swimming.

Here’s that La Tourette/ Groszki race by the way:

Thanks for showing everyone these videos, Bobo!!

Instead of ¨We will bury you¨, the line should have been ¨We will broadcast your NCAA Swimming & Diving Championship¨

I’ve been waiting to see this for some time now. It’s interesting to see in the 200 Fly that Conger lost .1-.2 each wall to Schooling and Bosch only to stay even or pick it back up in the swim. The same to a lesser degree is true in the 100 fly.
