Men's NCAA Champs: 400 Medley Relay
Mar 24, 2017
400 MEDLEY RELAYNCAA Record:
US Open Record:
TEXAS UNLEASHED on this 400 medley relay dropping an absolutely unfathomable time of 2:59.22. The first team to ever break the 3 minute barrier. They shattered their NCAA, Meet, and US Open Record of 3:00.68 from 2016. The Longhorns did not have a weak leg whatsoever -- John Shebat led off in 44.58 and was followed by Will Licon (49.75), Joseph Schooling (43.60), and Jack Conger (41.29). They certainly flexed their muscles in this race. To put it in perspective, California placed second in a new American Record time of 3:01.51 and finished over two seconds behind Texas. Unreal. The American Record holder in the 100 yard backstroke for Cal, Ryan Murphy, got the Bears out to the lead out of lane eight posting a 44.32, but in the end Texas' dominance was too much and the Golden Bears took second. Touching for the bronze was Missouri in 3:01.91 led by a 50.22 breaststroke leg from Fabian Schwingenschloegl and 40.72 anchor from Michael Chadwick.
