Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian of Bremerton continued his dominance in the 50-meter freestyle with his second win in the event in the Mare Nostrum series on Wednesday.

Adrian, who swims for Cal Aquatics, won the 50 and 100 free in the first stop of the series in Monte Carlo, Monaco, last week, and he cruised to the wall in Canet, France, in 21.68 Wednesday. He was the lone swimmer to come in under 22 seconds. France’s Florent Manaudou finished second in 22.00 and Anthony Ervin, Adrian’s training partner was third in 22.21.

With his win Wednesday, Adrian has earned $1,258.59 so far in the three-city European tour.

The 100 free is Thursday. The series concludes June 14-15 in Barcelona, Spain.
