Adrian sweeps second leg of Mare Nostrum seriesJune 12th, 2014 by Annette Griffus
This is becoming redundant.
And I’m OK with that.
Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian swept the second leg of the Mare Nostrum series with a win in the 100 freestyle on Thursday. Adrian, who is the defending Olympic champion in the event, won the freestyle in 48.43 seconds in Canet, France.
Hanser Garcia Hernandez of Cuba was second in 48.77 and Konrad Czerniak of Poland was third in 49.07. Garcia Hernandez was the top seed after the morning prelims while Adrian was seeded third.
Adrian won the sprint freestyles in the opening leg of the series in Monte Carlo.
The series will move to the final leg on Saturday-Sunday in Barcelona, Spain.
