Adrian second in 100 free at LA Invite

Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian wasn’t able to defend the 100 freestyle title he won last year with a second-place finish Friday at the Los Angeles Invite at Southern Cal’s Uytengsu Aquatic Center.

Adrian finished behind winner Vladimir Morozov of Russia by .03 seconds. Morozov touched the wall in 49.00 seconds with Adrian right behind at 49.03.

Adrian is scheduled to swim in the 50 freestyle, which is Saturday.
