WATCH: All GT Pool Records From The TYR Pro Series – Atlanta

2018 TYR PRO SWIM SERIES – ATLANTA

Below, check out race videos of all the Georgia Tech pool records broken (in finals) at the TYR Pro Swim Series – Atlanta from the beginning of March.

A total of nine records were broken in finals, with an additional two broken in prelims (that weren’t lowered at night). Taylor Ruck broke three in the women’s 100 free, 100 back and 200 back, while the other women’s records went to world record holder Sarah Sjostrom in the 100 fly and Ashley Twichell in the 1500.

For the men, two-time World Champion Chase Kalisz lowered his own marks in both the 200 fly and 400 IM, while Ryan Murphy (200 back) and Jack Conger (100 fly) each got one. Andrew Wilson lowered the marks in both the 100 and 200 breast in prelims, ultimately winning both at finals but not going faster than he did in the heats.

Notable former pool records holders include Simone Manuel (100 free), Missy Franklin (200 back), and Brooke Bennett, whose 1500 pool record had stood since 1995.

These are some impressively fast swims. Ruck 2:06 in the 2BK, Kalisz 4:08 in the 4IM. Conger 51-flat in the 1FLY. Yikes, they aren’t fooling around here.

Dare Rose is the most impressive, nearly 4-7 years younger than the next youngest competitor in this A-Final in the 200 fly

Brooke’s record was from 1995 or 1996?
