MESA, Arizona, April 11. NATHAN Adrian talked to Swimming World TV's Jeff Commings about what he focuses on in the 100 freestyle on mid-season. Although Adrian admits to being “been here and there with training these past couple of weeks,” he managed to pull of a win at the Arena Grand Prix – Mesa in the men's 100 freestyle. Guess all of the fun at Matt Grevers and Annie Chandler's wedding last weekend wasn't too terrible for his swimming!
100 freestyle recap: California's Nathan Adrian blasted his way to victory in the men's 100-meter freestyle. His 48.42 this evening was off his top swim in the world (48.11), but Adrian's winning time is the third-fastest effort this year behind a 48.38 from James Magnussen of Australia. Adrian hasn't lost a 100 free in more than a year. Longhorn Ricky Berens ripped off a 49.06 for second, coming home in 25.17 (faster than Adrian's 25.32) in the final 50 meters.
