Ali Khalafalla was the one to beat in the TYR Pro Series Bloomington 50 free final, but no one was quite up to the task. Surging to a 22.05 finish, Khalafalla was in a field all his own. Robert Howard (22.19) put up a strong effort to chase him down, but had to turn his sights to fending off Nathan Adrian (22.22), who touched in at third. Blake Pieroni finished off an impressive individual schedule with a 22.53, enough to beat Zach Apple (22.72) for fourth. Jack Franzman managed a sub-23.00 race himself, clocking in at 22.93. Luis Martinez and Spencer Bougie finished off the meet with times of 23.01 and 23.36, respectively, as the competition drew to a close.
