Bronze for Nathan Adrian in 100 free at worlds

August 1st, 2013 by Annette Griffus

Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian earned a medal Thursday in the 100-meter freestyle at the FINA World Swimming Championships as Team USA put two more swimmers on the medal podium in Barcelona.

Adrian, the Olympic champion from Bremerton, earned a bronze in 47.84 seconds as teammate Jimmy Feigen grabbed the silver in 47.82. James Magnussen of Australia won the gold in 47.71.

It’s the first loss for Nathan in the 100 free in two years. He finished sixth in the 2011 world championships in China.

Nathan will swim again in the prelims of the 50 free at 1 a.m. (local time). The semifinals are at 9 a.m. Friday.

A live stream of the prelims can be found here.
