Michael Andrew continues to climb the ladder. The face of USRPT, Andrew is not only revolutionizing training but race strategy. Coming off a stellar 100 breast, Andrew was fully prepared for another head-turning swim. He did not disappoint. Surging to the wall for a 24.91 finish, Andrew was the only man under 25 seconds, gaining a healthy lead over Grigory Tarasevich (25.10).

Gabriel Fantoni was in the mix, going just above his seed time to post a 25.34, enough to secure third and pass Hunter Armstrong (25.51). Mohamed Samy also came off a stellar 100 breast before the one-lapper, but seemed unaffected as he crashed the pads with a 25.78 to out-touch Nikos Sofianidis (25.79). Coleman Stewart and Charles Kondor rounded out the top finals heat with times of 25.84 and 26.65, respectively.
