2022 CA MVN FRAN CRIPPEN SWIM MEET OF CHAMPIONS

On Saturday night at the 2022 Fran Crippen Swim Meet of Champions, Cal pro Ryan Murphy clipped his season best of 1:56.78 in the 200 back, winning the event with a 1:56.43. With the swim, Murphy reset the #1 time in the world this year, which was previously his 1:56.78 from the Pro Swim Series – Westmont in early March. Murphy was in a field of his own tonight, getting out to a solid first 100 split of 56.60. He then split 29.76 on the 3rd 50, before fading a bit down the stretch with a 30.07 on the final 50 of the race. Murphy is by far the top American in the event this year, setting himself up nicely for the U.S. International Team Trials, which take place at the end of this month.
