There is something in the air here in Atlanta. It was tight race between California’s Josh Prenot, Ryan Murphy, and Texas’ Will Licon, but Licon managed to get his hand on the wall first. His time also bumps him ahead of Ryan Lochte, giving him the second fastest performance in history and the pool record. Licon’s 200 IM is Texas’ fourth NCAA title in as many events.
Prenot and Murphy finished second and third at 1:40.14 and 1:40.27, respectively. On the other side of the pool, Florida’s Jan Switkowski reached in for fourth, finishing with a final time of 1:41.36.
Brigham Young’s Jake Taylor won the B final with his time of 1:42.82, dropping nearly half a second from his morning swim.
