Watch Jack Conger’s 51.83 100 Fly At Texas A&M (Race Video)

As reported by SwimSwam Contributor, Karl Ortegon:

This morning, Jack Conger unloaded a 51.95 in the 100 fly to take the top seed by well over a full second at the Texas Senior Circuit Championships, which is hosted by Texas A&M University. Tonight, he dropped a 51.83, the only swimmer to break 53 seconds. Now representing Nation’s Capital Swim Club, Conger was out like a rocket in 24.15, and came home in 27.68 for the win. His 51.64 from January is already the 5th fastest time in the world this year, and tonight he put up the 13th fastest time. Finishing 2nd behind him was Clark Smith in 53.13 (.11 off of a personal best), the only other competitor to come home under 28 seconds, and 3rd was Tripp Cooper (53.41). A classic Texas Longhorn sweep.

Smith won the 200 free earlier in the meet with a lifetime best of 1:49.23, his second time under 1:50 ever. He broke that barrier for the first time in June at the Arena Pro Swim Series in Santa Clara. He finished ahead of Nitro’s Sam Lewis (1:51.13) and Longhorn Aquatics teammate PJ Dunne (1:51.94).

The video is dead. Try the video that David Guthrie embedded in the comments of the original story. One of the few 1080p quality videos from a small meet 🙂

Off topic but as a NAG record specialist, I had to report the news. 🙂
10-year-old speedy girl Miriam Sheehan has struck again!
On the last day of the Arizona age group championships, she broke the 50 free 10 and under NAG record in 28.52. It was 28.59 by Lia Neal.
She now holds the 50 free, 50 back, 50 fly, 100 back and 100 fly 10 and under NAG records.

He will make the next Olympic team. I think people are about to realize that the next three Olympics possibly four are going to be about the rivalry of Conger and Schooling. Phelps may think he is unbeatable but other people can have lucky finishes too. 1:49 200 fly will happen before 2032 Olympics. 49.4 in 100 as well.

Conger: 100 free top four(finals relay in Rio), 1st in 100 fly in 50.7 or faster. Phelps 50.80 2nd.

Is this what they mean by American Dreaming? I feel Conger has more upside than Schooling because of the length and the height and will distance himself from Joseph in the next couple years.

I hope we see a couple of people under 51 this summer however I would be happy if LeClos sticks around at 51. I can’t put me finger on it, but something about the guy rubs me the wrong way.
