Bremerton's Adrian fourth fastest in 50 free prelims

Posted by Ron Judd

Nathan Adrian of Bremerton is tied for fourth after the morning prelim swims in the 50 freestyle in Omaha. Leading the pack is Cullen Jones, with a new AR of 21.59, followed by Stanford's Ben Wildman-Tobriner (21.68) and Gary Hall Jr. (21.89). Garrett Weber-Gale and Jason Lezak share Adrian's time, 22:05, in the fourth slot.

In tonight's semis, Adrian swims in lane three in the first heat, against Wildman-Tobriner and Weber-Gale. The second semi heat pits Jones against Lezak and Hall. The start list is here. Strong field here, with only two Olympic spots open. Finals are tomorrow night.

Adrian, 19, qualified for the Beijing team last night with a fourth-place finish in the 100 freestyle, where the top six earn Olympic spots.
