In the first edition of the 50 shootout events at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Austin, Margo Geer collected the first win in the 50 free final. Geer swam a 24.90 to out-duel Zhang Yufei of China (24.99). Geer swam a 24.89 in the quarters, 24.91 in the semis and finished her third swim with a time in between both of those.

Zhang improved on her 25.21 in the quarters and 25.25 in the semis to make the final a little more interesting with her first sub-25 swim of the meet.
