Caeleb Dressel showed off his versatility in the men’s 100 fly, enforcing his monopoly on sprint events with a meet-record 50.36. Dressel swam this on the final night of the 2019 Fran Crippen Swim Meet of Champions in Mission Viejo, California. Adilbek Mussin was his closest competitor at 52.61, which barely surpassed Marius Kusch’s mark of 52.79. Evan Carlson managed to lower his time from prelims, posting a 53.08 for fourth, while Jiajun Sun turned in a 53.25 to break into the top five.

Cody Bybee had an impressive swim of his own, clocking in at 53.90 to take down Kyle Robrock (54.15) and Ariel Spektor (54.84).
