Adrian Answers U.S. Sprint ?s: 47.9; Backed By Dressel, 47.9, Comerford, 52.8 & Manuel, 53

Nathan Adrian (USA) powering his way back to the Olympic podium in 2016 - by Patrick B. Kraemer

It was not that long ago when Nathan Adrian was the saving grace of American freestyle sprinting the USA men were struggling – and sometimes not managing – to keep a hand ahead of France and Australia and the women were no match for the Dolphins, solo and quartet formations. In Budapest at world titles from July 23-30, the above may ring true still but on the strength of night 1 at U.S. nationals and trials in Indianappolis, the fight is most definitely on: Adrian 47.9, Dressel, 47.9, Haas, 48.2, Apple (48.2 after 48.1 in heats); Comerford 52.8, Manuel 53 flat.
