Nick Mahabir Clocks 1:01.92 100 Breast, #5 15-16 All-Time, on Final Day of SMOC

2022 CA MVN FRAN CRIPPEN SWIM MEET OF CHAMPIONS

On the final day of the MVN Fran Crippen Swim Meet of Champions, Cal pro Ryan Murphy swam a solid 53.49 in prelims of the 100 back. Although Murphy would scratch finals of the event, the swim stands as his 2nd-fastest of the year, behind only his 2022 best of 53.03, which he swam at the Pro Swim Series in Westmont at the beginning of March. Murphy’s 53.03 currently ranks him 2nd in the world this year, as the U.S. Internation Tean Trials, which take place at the end of the month, rapidly approaches.

Murphy also swam prelims of the 100 fly, leading the field with a 53.14. That swim was also a touch off his 2022 best of 52.76.

Nick Mahabir, a 16-year-old out of Coronado Swim Association-Team Elite, won the men’s 100 breast on 1:02.02. That swim stands as Mahabir’s 2nd-fastest of his career, as he posted a speedy 1:01.92 in prelims. Mahabir’s prelims swim makes him the #5 performer all-time in the 15-16 age group. Here is the newly-updated all-time top 10 in the men’s 15-16 LCM 100 breast:
