WHAT. A. RACE. Just when Stanford needed a boost, Simone Manuel unloaded a new NCAA record in the 50 freestyle with a 21.17, just barely missing Abbey Weitzeil's American record of 21.12 from 2016. It looked like Liz Li from Ohio State was going to take the win with about 10 yards to go, but Manuel put her head down and buried the finish to take the win. Olivia Smoliga, the defending champion in this event, touched for the silver in 21.27 and Liz Li grabbed the bronze with a 21.29.
