Topping off the evening in Des Moines was the men’s 100 fly final, headlined by Andrew Wilson, who won the 100 breast on Thursday. At the finish, however, Andrew slowly fatigued as Caeleb Dressel accelerated past him. At the touch, it was Dressel with the win at 50.92, breaking the 2018 PSS record held by Jack Conger (51.00). This time marks Dressel’s 11th swim under 51 seconds in the 100 fly. Outside of taper meets, this is Dressel’s 2nd-fastest swim in-season.

It’s been a good week for Michael Andrew ‘s butterfly. The 20-year-old hit personal bests in both the 100-meter and 100-yard butterfly within eight days, thanks to this morning’s 51.49 meter swim. Andrew qualified first at the Des Moines Pro Swim Series, shaving .04 off of his career-best with a finals swim still to go. Just last Friday, Andrew knocked half a second off his 100-yard fly best, going 45.47 at the Carlsbad Sectional. The versatile Andrew is still paring down his lineup for this summer’s U.S. Olympic Trials.
