Grigory Tarasevich vaulted to fifth in the world in the men’s 100-meter back at the 2016 Russian Nationals.

Tarasevich hit the wall in 53.03 to lead the way out of semifinal 1 of the backstroke.  That swim cleared the Russian Olympic selection time of 53.99, and put him just ahead of Guilherme Guido (53.10) for fifth in the world.

Only Mitch Larkin (52.48), Ryan Murphy (52.57), Camille Lacourt (52.97) and Xu Jiayu (52.98) have been faster this year.

Evgeny Rylov, who lead prelims with a 53.25 to move to eighth in the world, took the second spot with a 53.22 tonight.  He’s also under the Russian Olympic selection time.

Nikita Ulyanov (54.19), Andrei Shabasov (54.34), Mark Nikolaev (54.48), Anton Butymov (55.20), Nikita Babchenko (55.65) and Roman Larin (55.85) will also compete in the finale.

    Not bad for the ACC record- holdet/ ’16 champ but when Muroh goes 50 flat ( prelims). 49.0 (semis) and 47 high ( finals) @ Rio it’ll all be academic.

    Oh and then 46-plus leading iff the world record- setting 400 MR!
