WATCH: Abbey Weitzeil Breaks Pac-12 Meet Record with 21.03 50 Free

2020 PAC-12 WOMEN’S SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Cal’s Abbey Weitzeil got off to a fast start at the 2020 women’s Pac-12 Championships. In her first individual swim of the meet, Weitzeil took down her own Pac-12 Meet Record with a 21.09 in prelims of the 50 free. It was, at the time, the 4th fastest in history.

In finals, Weitzeil lowered that record again. She tied the #3 performance all-time with a 21.03, matching Tennessee’s Erika Brown, who set the SEC Record with a 21.03 last week. You can watch a video of Weitzeil’s finals swim below.
