Matt Grevers breaks 100 back world record at 2015 Duel in the Pool


Olympic champion Matt Grevers (Lake Forest, Ill.) set a short-course meters world record in the 100-meter backstroke and Team USA swimmers totaled nine American records Saturday to clinch a seventh consecutive Mutual of Omaha Duel in the Pool title, 155-107, over Europe at the Indiana University Natatorium.

Grevers, who set an American record leading off last night’s 400m medley relay, topped that performance Saturday with a time of 48.92 seconds to win the men’s 100m back by nearly 1.5 seconds.
