WATCH: Molly Hannis Wins 50 Breast Shootouts Again in Mesa

2018 TYR PRO SWIM SERIES – MESA

The stroke shootouts were back at the 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series stop in Mesa. This was just the 2nd time we’ve seen the stroke 50s in this format, as swimmers competed in shootouts for the first time at the Austin Pro Swim in January. In the shootouts, the top 8 swimmers in each of the respective strokes will compete in the quarterfinal. The 4 fastest swimmers then move on to the semifinal, with the fastest 2 from the semifinal moving on to the final. Those swimmers then go head-to-head to determine the winner.

In the women’s 50 breast rounds, Austin champ Molly Hannis once again took the win. She put up yet another sub-30, touching in 29.97 while fellow Olympic breaststroker Breeja Larson was 2nd in 30.42. The event also features junior star Zoe Bartel, who finished 3rd in the semifinal round with a 31.57 ahead of Peyton Kondis (31.82)

Is Molly Hannis doing some sort of no breath approach here? It looks like she’s consciously keeping her head low on some strokes and picking it up more on other strokes almost like swimming fly. Her stroke is already very ‘wave’ heavy with lots of undulation, so hard to tell.
