Talk about an eventful, and satisfying, meet.
Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian won the 50-meter freestyle by .01 seconds over George Bovell at the Indianapolis Grand Prix Friday afternoon.
Adrian touched the wall in 22.88 seconds. It’s the fourth-fastest time in the world so far this year. Bovell had the lead coming into the wall, but Adrian had a great finishing kick to just out-touch Bovell at the wall. Former Olympic champion Anthony Ervin was third in 22.24.
Adrian beat Michael Phelps in the 100 freestyle Thursday, despite his swim trunks ripping in the back as he bent over on the blocks. Thanks to the rip, Adrian has been all over the internet, garnering plenty of attention.
