IRVINE, California, August 9. THE Olympic champion and World Champion already, Matt Grevers will look to reclaim the National championship in the 100 back in tonight’s finals. He qualified first in 53.11, just one one-hundredth ahead of David Plummer, the man who beat him out in Indianapolis last year. In addition to Plummer, Grevers will have to fend off the likes of Ryan Murphy, Michael Phelps, and Nick Thoman. Grevers shared afterwards about how he felt during the swim and looked ahead to what he can do in the final.
