Taylor Ruck, fresh off a dominant performance at the Commonwealth Games that included a bronze medal in the 100 free, took down the World and Olympic champion in the women’s 100 free in Indy.

Ruck led wire-to-wire and touched in 53.42, while Stanford’s Simone Manuel came in second at 53.84. Manuel’s swim was her first long course 100 free since she won the 2017 World title in Budapest.

Mission Viejo’s Margo Geer finished third in 54.40, just ahead of Lousville’s Mallory Comerford (54.51). Stanford’s Katie Ledecky, not long after swimming the second-fastest 400 free in history, was fifth in 54.56.

Also in the final were HPC-Ontario’s Kayla Sanchez (54.62) and Rebecca Smith (55.27) and Cardinal’s Kelsi Dahlia (55.28). Three-time Olympian Allison Schmitt won the B-final in 55.13.
