2018 MEN’S NCAA SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Caeleb Dressel continues to break barriers.  Barely a year after the 44 second mark was broken in the 100 fly, Dressel broke the 43 second mark, winning the 100 fly tonight at NCAAs in a blistering time of 42.80.  Watch below, courtesy of Lauren Kanaskie.

Friday night at the 2018 Men’s NCAA Championships in Minneapolis, Minnesota set the stage for one final NCAA 100 fly showdown between Florida’s Caeleb Dressel and Texas’ Joseph Schooling. The race once again went to Dressel. He made history as the first man to break 43, clocking in at 42.80 to dominate the race. The Gators went 1-2 with Jan Switkowski taking 2nd in 44.49. That makes Switkowski the 6th fastest man ever. Indiana’s Vini Lanza moved to #7 all-time with his 44.50 for 3rd. Texas’ Schooling was 4th in 44.88.

Splits:

  • 1st 50 Split- 19.99
  • 2nd 50 Split- 22.81
  • Final Time- 42.80

The former NCAA Record stood at a 43.58 from last season’s NCAA meet, where Dressel upset schooling for the title after Schooling had won the previous 2 years. They’re still the fastest 2 swimmers in history.

Oh my! After millions of years of evolution, my senses still are having a hard time of processing this swim. Thank science we have verifiable times to confirm what our eyes are disbelieving!

Definitely Not Sun Yang

keep your evolution propaganda bs out of swimming

Jmanswimfan

Do you not believe in evolution ?????

carlo

I believe in evolution because my grandfather was a fish. People don’t believe me when i say that but it,s true.
Grandfather was a fish, grandmother was a monkey. They didn’t evolve at the same rate.

The best thing that can happen at this meet is for Townley Haas and Caleb Dressel swim a 200 free time trial after the meet. Somebody start a petition and get it to the meet director now.

2 x 200 F.R.: Haas/ Pieroni vs Farris/ Dressel

Ok noted. Schooling to Dressel: see u in Tokyo. And Dressel better pray hard he don’t choked. Hopefully he can upset Dressel as what he did in Rio.

Zanna

Dressel was not in the 100 fly in Rio so Schooling did not upset him.

Buona

Sorry. I should say upset Dressel as what he did to Phelps.

More likely Schooling to Dressel: hey, can I come train with you?

Filip
