WATCH: Nathan Adrian vs. Michael Andrew in 50 Free Shootouts

2018 PRO SWIM SERIES – AUSTIN

The 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series in Austin brought something new to the table. Swimmers competed in “shootout” style rounds of the stroke 50s. The first round (quarterfinal) included the top 8 swimmers from prelims. The top 4 then advanced to round 2 (semifinal). The top 2 from the semifinal round advanced to the final showdown (round 3).

SwimSwam has put together the videos from the Shootout finals. Below are the videos of the men’s 50 free. It all came down to Michael Andrew vs. Nathan Adrian, with Adrian winning the title in 22.21. Videos of the other stroke shootouts for the men and women will get their own separate posts. SwimSwam will also be posting the videos of A finals in all other events.

Putting the deck camera guy on a stability ball on top of a skateboard seems like a poor decision.
