Watch: Molly Hannis Drops 29.71 50m Breast

Technique Changes Led To Molly Hannis' 29.71 50m Breast (VIDEO)

Jan 14, 2018

Molly Hannis has been on fire over the last few months. At the 2017 Tennessee Invite in November, she uncorked a 56.64 in the 100-yard breast — the second-fastest performance ever. Only Lilly King has been faster (56.30).

Hannis kept that momentum rolling into the 2018 long course season with a 29.71 in the 50m breast at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Austin, Texas, on Jan. 13. That makes Hannis the fourth-fastest performer of all time — only behind King (29.40), Ruta Meilutyte (29.48), and Yulia Efimova (29.52).

After the race, Hannis talked about the minor technique changes she made in training that led to major results.
