Pac-10: Adrian sets American Record in 50 Free

World Team Member Nathan Adrian, swimming for the University of California, rocketed to a time of 18.82 to break Ben Wildman-Tobriner’s American record of 18.87 during the second day of the 2009 Pac-10 Swimming Championships at the Belmont Plaza Pool in Long Beach. Adrian returned just a few minutes later to prove the time wasn’t a fluke with another 18.82 as the relay leadoff of the California 200 free relay.
