Huntington Beach, CA — March 6, 2011 — 2x Olympic Gold Medalist Matt Grevers had a standout race at the Indianapolis Grand Prix to tie for first place in the 100m backstroke. Wearing TYR’s Tracer C-Series Grevers put up a time of 54.08, which stands near the top of world rankings. In addition, Grevers garnered second place in the 100m freestyle with an outstanding time of 50.01. TYR athlete Josh Schneider also swam to an impressive finish in the 50m freestyle. With a time of 22.65, Schneider tied for second place.
Schneider’s SwimMAC teammate Nick Thoman finished in third place in the 200m backstroke. Thoman also swam a 53.93 100m backstroke leg in the 400m medley relay for SwimMac. Interestingly enough, Thoman’s time, while outfitted in TYR’s Tracer B-Series, would have placed him 3rd in the world rankings had it been a non-relay.
