This week’s Performance Of The Week, sponsored by LumaLanes, goes to Jack Conger for his performance in the men’s 100 fly at the Austin Speedo Sectionals.

Swimming in what is likely his last meet before US Nationals, Conger posted a 51.34 win in the 100 fly to win the event by over a second and continue what has been a strong long course season. The former Texas swimmer has become one of the most consistent long course Americans this year, posting several sub-52 second swims in the event.

Conger already has the top time for an American in the 100 fly in 2018 with a 51.00 from the TYR Pro Swim Series meet in Atlanta, and his time this weekend is still a half second ahead of the next fastest American this year (Michael Andrew’s 51.86 from the TYR Pro Series meet in Columbus). He has already been faster than he was at last summer’s nationals (51.33), and was just .01 off that time with his sectionals swim.

While Caeleb Dressel will be a major factor in this event in a few weeks, as seems to be in almost any event this season (he is currently the third fastest American with a 52.20), Conger is putting together a case to be a contender for the top spot this summer and potentially joining the exclusive sub-50 second 100 fly.  

Congratulations Jack Conger on earning Swimming World’s Performance of the Week!
