INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, June 25. LONGHORN Jimmy Feigen discusses his second-place finish in the 100 freestyle at the 2013 USA Swimming nationals, marking his first time making the World Championship team in an individual event.
Men's 100 freestyle Recap: California's Nathan Adrian overtook training partner Anthony Ervin to win the men's 100-meter freestyle. Adrian put up a time of 48.10 for the win tonight, after turning second behind Ervin at the 50-meter mark, 22.38 to 22.73. Adrian, however, had plenty in the tank on the way home with a sterling 25.37. He's been faster this year with a fourth-ranked season-best of 48.08 from the Santa Clara stop of the Arena Grand Prix, and likely has plenty to come heading into Barcelona.
Longhorn's Jimmy Feigen, meanwhile, snuck past Ervin to earn the second spot on the squad with a swift time of 48.24. That time shot him to eighth in the world, and beat his lifetime best of 48.46 from the techsuited 2009 U.S. National Championships.
Ervin faded to third with a 48.49 after pushing the pace early, but still managed to line up a 400-meter freestyle relay spot with his effort. That's his second fastest time ever behind a blistering 48.33 from the 2001 World Championships.
