California’s Nathan Adrian put on a show by downing a historic pool record at the Texas Swim Center, when he lowered the Matt Biondi time in the men’s 100 free.
Nathan Adrian took down a historic pool record with his sizzling sprint of 48.32 out of a star-studded finale, which included Anthony Ervin, Ricky Berens and Garrett Weber-Gale, at the Arena Grand Prix held in Austin, Texas. Swimmers were vying for cash prizes this evening with $500 on the line for first-place, $300 for second place and $100 for third place.
That swim beat Matt Biondi’s facility standard of 48.42 that had stood as the American record from 1988 to 2001. Both Biondi and Adrian are Olympic gold medalists from Berkeley.
So happy for him! Love the picture we took of him on the red carpet at Golden Goggles. (above) Keep this going until Rio 2016!
