California’s Ryan Murphy cruised to victory in the men’s 200-meter back at the 2016 Arena Pro Swim Series Orlando.

Murphy stopped the clock in 1:57.23.  That swim would have put him in the top five in the world if he wasn’t already second with a scorching 1:55.99 from the Austin stop.

Teammate Jacob Pebley hit the wall second in 1:57.78 to move up to ninth in the world, besting his 1:57.83 from the Austin stop as well.

Grigory Tarasevich placed third overall in a 1:58.04, while NYAC’s Arkady Vyatchanin also broke 2:00 with a fourth-place 1:59.28.

Sarasota’s Austin Katz (2:01.32), Brazil’s Fabio Santi (2:01.43), Jeremy Dezwirek (2:03.63) and NBAC’s Chase Kalisz (2:04.34) closed out the rest of the finale.

Harrison Haines captured the B final title in 2:02.22 with Metro’s Carlos Omana placing second in 2:02.56.
