Updated December 5, 2008

FEDERAL WAY, Washington, December 4. IT didn't take long for Matt Grevers to move back to third-best American status in the men's 50-yard freestyle as Nathan Adrian of California posted a blazing fast time at the Husky Invitational in Federal Way, Wash.

Adrian clocked a time of 18.94 to edge Grevers' 18.95 registered tonight at the USA Swimming Short Course Nationals held in Atlanta.

Both times just missed Ben Wildman-Tobriner's American record of 18.87 set at the 2007 NCAA Men's Championships.
