Xu Jiayu was able to hold on to his number one seed in the men’s 100 back semifinal and did so with a new Championship record time of 52.17. Olympic champions Ryan Murphy and Matt Grevers also qualified in the top four for tomorrow’s 100 back final.

Yulia Efimova traded Lilly King for the top spot going into tomorrow night’s with a top showing of 1:05.56 in the women’s 100 breast, while Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu made history for herself in the women’s 200 IM by claiming a fourth straight win in the 200 IM.
