Michael Chadwick, who just moved out to San Diego to train with Team Elite, held off Nathan Adrian in the 100 free final on the last night of the 2018 US Winter Nationals in Greensboro. Chadwick was out quick and hung on to win the final at 48.57. Chadwick held off the 2012 Olympic Gold medalist Adrian who was a 48.59 for second, despite coming home in a blistering 25.01.

Those two were well in front of the rest of the field with Markus Thormeyer finishing in third place at 49.71 and Destin Lasco in fourth at 49.84. Those four were the only swimmers under 50 seconds in the final.

Carson Olafson (50.04), Aaron Greenberg (50.41), Josh Fleagle (50.70) and Jesse Novak (50.71) also swam in the A-Final.
