Watch As Florida Men Smash SEC Record With 6:08.00 800 Freestyle Relay

2022 SEC SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

At the 2022 SEC Swimming & Diving Championships, we saw the men’s and women’s 200 medley and 800 freestyle relays.

On the men’s side, Florida raced to the top of the podium in both of the events with a 1:22.06 in the 200 and a 6:08.00 in the 800. In the latter event, Florida established a new SEC record, downing its own mark of 6:09.14 from 2019 by over a second.

On the women’s side, Alabama started out with a 1:33.94 SEC record in the 200 medley, getting to the wall half a second ahead of Tennessee’s 1:34.63. Tennessee, however, came out on top in the women’s 800 freestyle with a 6:58.81.

Bummer right? Unfortunately, A&M and Georgia are the only teams we could find posting race videos, and neither was in Alabama’s heat in that race.

One of the many downsides of the “splitting lanes” thing.
