Seal Beach, CA — December 16, 2015 — This past weekend some of the nation’s most elite swimmers took to Indianapolis to duke it out with the European All-Stars at the 2015 Mutual of Omaha Duel in The Pool. As expected, team TYR delivered some of the competition’s most talked about performances in the industry’s most sought after tech suit- the Avictor.
Olympic Gold Medalist Matt Grevers began the meet with a win in the men’s 200m backstroke, before going on to set an American record in 400m medley relay. Throughout the weekend Grevers continued to dominate, setting a world record in the men’s 100m back with a time of 48.92. In his final swim, Grevers joined forces with fellow TYR athlete Josh Schneider for the men’s 400m free relay. Together the pair helped the U.S. team to take the lead over Europe with a new American record of 3:05.42.
Freshly sponsored TYR athlete Cody Miller also had a breakout weekend, clinching two short course American records within just two nights. The breaststroke phenom stunned his hometown crowd winning both the 100m and 200m breaststroke.
Danish swimmer and team TYR athlete Jeanette Ottesen set a new U.S. Open record with a time of 55.10 in the 100m butterfly, crushing the existing time of 56.23 seconds previously set by Natalie Coughlin. Jeanette also placed second in the women’s 50m free, gaining three points for the European All-Stars.
In addition to his American record relay contribution, World Champion Josh Schneider claimed second place with an impressive time of 46.66 in the men’s 100m free. Josh also touched third in a thrillingly close 50m free, while fellow team TYR athlete Michael McBroom placed third in the men’s 1500m free.
