Who is Ryan Murphy and what makes him so good at backstroke?
In this week’s Blackboard Breakdown from Propulsion Swimming, we look at Murphy’s achievements in swimming and why we think he’s still the man to beat in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
In this analysis, we will look at Murphy’s performances over the last 5 years; starting from his amazing medal haul at the Rio 2016 Olympics to backstroke NCAA dominance, and then his incredible swims at the International Swimming League in 2019 and also in ISL 2020.
After disappointment at the Budapest World Championships 2017 and the Gwangju World Championships 2019 due to big competition from the likes of Coleman Stewert, Rylov, Irie, Kolesnikov, Mitch Larkin etc; Murphy will be looking to settle the score at Tokyo 2021.
