One of the most familiar faces in swimming closed the second night of the 2018 US Winter National Championships in a familiar place — on top of the podium.

Nathan Adrian surged to the men’s 50 free title. The Olympic gold medalist clocked a 21.94 to hold off a closing Michael Chadwick, who finished in 22.12.

Both easily earned Olympic trials cuts.

Payton Sorenson finished third (22.45), followed by Aaron Greenberg (22.71), Erik Risolvato (22.74), Cameron Kidd (23.11) and Payton Woods (23.13), each earning trials cuts.
